[Mono-list] cvs cygwin Error Npgsql

The reason the error comes up is because resgen is a part of .NET SDK is is not 
in the path (I'm assuming you are following the Mono Wiki). TO fix that, copy 
dotnet.sh to dotnet.sh.ok and then edit your dotnet.sh in /etc/profile.d/ and 
make it look like this:

rogram Files/Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003/SDK/v1.1/Bin"

Source the file again, or logout/login. I must warn you however, that resgen 
will crash the cygwin shell window, at least under Terminal Services. If that 
happens to you simply run resgen in VS.NET's command window file by file on 
various .resx files, restarting make in the cygwin window as it keeps stumbling 
across various .resx files for Npgsql. You should, of course, revert your 
dotnet.sh to not include .Net sdk dirs by copying dotnet.sh.ok over dotnet.sh 
(the reverse process of what you did in the beginning). Now, with 2 windows 
open--one a command window for VS.NET and one cygwin walk through the make 
process, running resgen on file after file as make requests it, until the make 
process is complete. This is not the best solution, but it will help you make 
it through the build.
