I am using Windows XP with Cygwing and latest sources from SVN.

When I tried to build Mono (using mono/make) the makefile of mcs was using
csc.exe that was unable to build the corlib for Mono.

It wasn't surprise but my question is why is csc.exe used if it cannot be

I have dowloaded monolite using "make get-monolite-latest" but I wasn't used
at all.

I was able to compile mcs using "make EXTERNAL_MCS=/mono-1.1.7/bin/mcs"
where /mono-1.1.7 is the directory of an existing Mono installation.

How is it possible to compile mcs using monolite?
