[Mono-list] now cygwin setup has prebuilt glib, but...

I noticed that the latest cygwin setup enables you to install
glib/gtk/atk/pango in your machine. However, with it I could
not build mono runtime (monoburg got frozen). I haven't checked
in depth, but it is likely to happen; maybe they are based on
cygwin1.dll, while mono expects windows native libraries.

Right now I recommend not to install glib package if you want
to build mono under cygwin.

I might be wrong. Please tell us if anyone built mono with them
successfully :-) But still I suspect mono built in such way
depends on cygwin1.dll.
(you can check with objdump: objdump -p path/to/mono.exe | grep DLL)
