[Mono-dev] VS build requires cygwin build first?

I am trying to follow the build instructions for Windows/Visual Studio.


On this page I installed cygwin, and got as far as "at this point, you can
do a VisualStudio build <http://www.mono-project.com/Compiling_Mono_VSNET>"
so I flipped over to that page and continued.  Thus I never got as far as
building on that first page.

The second page:

Has me set some environment variables.  One it suggest pointing to
C:/cygwin/opt, however my cygwin install as per the previous instructions
has no opt directory.

Additionally, it then says "set *MONO_PATH* to the class libraries
directory build by cygwin (local) or on Linux (remote)." but of course I
haven't done a build yet with cygwin.

So I'm guessing the VisualStudio build is only possible after you have done
a cygwin build at least once?  Seems like if that is the case, then the
first page should state before linking to the Visual Studio build page.
