Part of the problem with Cygwin is that there is no common version of
Cygwin.  It is more like a continuous flood of updates: so if you catch
Cygwin at the right point, you will have the right tools with the right

Sometimes you will be unlucky enough to get a different set of versions,
and you wont be able to build.

The installer bits for Mono have been historically on CVS, but we have
not built these ones recently.  Dan Morgan (a long time Mono developer)
has taken over doing this.
