Thanks for the hint. I googled them from some site which I hope can be 

BTW, if the compiled mcs and class libs are platform independent and 
still needed to jump start the build, why aren't they checked in the cvs 
under some tools modules, referenced in the makefiles and overwritten by 
use of env vars? The end result would be to provide a self sufficient 
build environment for mono and avoid breaking while making the build 
just with my new version of mcs that I would hack and modify, and (very 
lickely) be bogus forcing me to reinstall an old one every time just to 
make again. Any comments on that?
