The latest source of libffi which can be downloaded from their CVS
compiles on cygwin, after doing some modifications to sources( removing
#include ffi_common.h) .
However after compiling libffi and installing it properly,
I also got the same problems.

You can download the latest sources and install cygwin and I think It will

Can somebody please explain what exactly is
libtool.m4 and aclocal.m4, I don't know much abt that, so got stuck up.

Hello all,

           I'm writting you due I'm really having problems to install mono
on my PC.
When I try to install any mono version (12/13/14 Aug) I have problems:

           When I try to run ./autogen script for mono I get and error of
about adding aclocal.m4 to libtool.m4, I search and found the solution
was adding EXPORT ACLOCAL_FLAGS... but still get the error.

           I added aclocal.m4 content to libtool.m4 but get macros

           If I try to install mono 0.5 release instead of any mono version

(12/13/14 Aug) I get another error trying to install libfii-1.20
(configure: error: libffi has not been ported to i386-pc-cygwin32.).

           Any idea of why of these problems? I hope you don't mind asking
kind of questions  but I've been already a few days losing time with
these things. I'm an advanced linux user, maybe I have to fix any param
on my profile?

           Did anybody have such problems installing mono in cygwin?
           Sorry if anyone minds these sort of questions but I have been
for long with no results.

Thanks in advanced
