I hope it's not too late to add my 2 cents ...

I have also seen this same error message under Cygwin.  For example, it
has happened to me when Cygwin was configured to treat all files as Unix
files and the Makefile was a DOS file (CRLF on line endings instead of
just CR).

The main culprit was using WinZip to untar the sources.  It is a Windows
app, obviously, and puts CRLFs in all text files.  The solution is to
use tar under Cygwin to untar the sources.

Perhaps this issue can be chalked up to this WinZip problem?

Jeroen, did you eventually get the Mono build to work?  How did you get
the Mono sources onto disk when you tried the build?
