[Mono-list] Compiling Mono on Cygwin

I was finally able to build current cvs of mono on the latest cygwin.  Here
are some suggestions for others:

- remove  -DGC_WIN32_THREADS from configure.in
- download libgc-6.1-dev.zip
  from http://primates.ximian.com/~gonzalo/mono/
  and install it in your prefix ~/mono/install
- apply a patch from Gonzalo that removes the use of config.h
  and moves the variables to the gcc command-line

all else fells,
- get a big hammer and bang the hell out of configure until it works

ok, the last one, i was just kidding, don't try that one at home kids...

I've been trying to build mono from cvs on Cygwin, but I have not had any
I am using the mono-build-w32.sh script.
The configure script fails when looking for the gc hearders and library even
though the mono-build-w32.sh downloaded libgc-dev and installed it in
~/mono/install/include/gc and ~/mono/install/lib

What can I do to solve this problem?
