Yesterday I posted this message but it was a bit garbled so here it is

I tried a lot to make it work. I found in mono-build-w32.sh the code

# Select the stable version anyway...
if [ ! -z "${AUTO_STABLE}" -o -e /usr/autotool/stable ]; then
export AUTO_STABLE=${AUTO_STABLE:-/usr/autotool/stable}

and so i changed the third line in

export AUTO_DEVEL=${AUTO_DEVEL:-/usr/autotool/devel}

I got some warnings but then the compiler started. I got an error later from
the compiler about some resources missing. Did I do right?
