[Mono-dev] build mono with dynamic sgen library

Hi Alexander, Martin

    I had seen the flag in the configure, but I thought it would switch 
all the libraries to shared... and I was looking towards libmonosgen 
only. Anyway, after applying the flag and correcting that file 
(mini/main.c), I am getting this error now:

Creating the per profile list 
../../build/deps/net_4_x_corlib.dll.sources ...
MCS     [net_4_x] mscorlib.dll

Unhandled Exception:
Nested exception detected.
Original Exception: at System.Text.StringBuilderCache.Acquire (int) 
at string.FormatHelper 
(System.IFormatProvider,string,System.ParamsArray) <0x00035>
at string.Format (System.IFormatProvider,string,object[]) <0x000bf>
at System.Environment.GetResourceString (string,object[]) <0x0003a>
at System.TypeInitializationException..ctor (string,System.Exception) 
at Mono.CSharp.Driver.Main (string[]) <0x00059>

Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong?

Thank you :)
