[Mono-list] Building mono from source on cygwin...

I went to the beginning tutorial.

Followed the instructions here...


Building mono with build-mono-w32.sh was basically painless.

However, it appears that mcs was not included? I get "The assembly
corlib.dll was not found or could not be loaded." when I try to run "mcs".

I pulled the source for mcs down from the CVS server as well, but I can't
get manage to make it.

Help? I've been noodling over this for about a full day without making
progress. I'd love to get to the point where I can type "mcs hello.cs".
