The cygwin installer seems to want to install version 2.54, even when I de-select it, and I wind up with /usr/autotool/devel and /usr/autotool/stable branches of my cygwin root.  Since my mono build always fails at the end ("./configure;  Cannot fork: Resource temporarily unavailable") I assume v.2.54 of autoconf is default.  (My path variable to the dot-NET runtime is set when cygwin.bat is run, and I can run csc.exe from the cygwin bash prompt.)

I have both versions of autoconf installed on my cygwin machine.  The error
message is from something else.

The most irritating problem I've run into is that mcs build fails if I have
a source file open on a samba-mounted filesystem.  Perhaps some other process
has configure open?
