[Mono-dev] Building Mono on Windows - And Having a Windows Installer again

I see the latest version of Mono's Windows installer is 3.2.3.  Can this be used to build the latest from git?
I see a link for binaries for 3.4.0, but they are not official binaries.

I am going to try build Mono on Windows using Cygwin.  Not sure how web the visual studio stuff works.

If I am successful, I will put up somewhere an un-official Windows Installer for Mono so others can help.
The nice thing about the Combined Mono and Gtk# Installer for Windows is that you have something out-of-the box you can create a GUI app with Mono.   Very nice to have an C# gui app that can run on Windows and Linux.

Also, what is the best Linux distro to build mono?  OpenSUSE?  Debian, Ubuntu?  It has been awhile for me.  Not starting a flame war here - just wanting the easiest route to get the dependencies on linux  in order to build the latest mono from git.

And I want to play with MonoDevelop too, but Mono comes first.
