Thank you! I overlooked that script... I probably thought that I didn't
have to read all the page and know what to do. The script indeed seems to
work, however I don't see what it does differently than I...
It installs the precompiled stuff to .../install and not to /usr/local has I
tried but that shouldn't make a difference, should it?
Perhaps it's the aclocal stuff (where I have no clue that it does) or it's
because it adds the lib dir to the path (I didn't thought this is required)
Wouldn't it be a good idea (even if low-priority) idea to make it build
without some helper shell script?
BTW, the compiled mono.exe still doesn't run if I don't add the lib dir to
the PATH. I know, on Windows, DLLs must be either in the same dir as the EXE
or in the PATH. However, cygwin being a Unix emulation should have this
"feature" but cygwin programs should search there libs in the cygwin lib
path. Why does mono "misbehave" here? Is there a good reason?
PS: Installing glib for cygwin is horrible. I've respect for the brave men
or women who compiled the binary distributions... :-)
