Thanks Andy for setting me right. I have now built Mono without problems.

BTW, I also managed to generate the parsers System.Xml needs, without having
to build Mono completely. I will post the procedure and the parsers
themselves in the next day or two.

But not quite closely enough. :-,)  From there: "The make version that comes
with cygwin does not handle dos-style paths in pc files well, and will cause
**"multiple target patterns"** errors when compiling Mono." That's the error
you are seeing.

I don't know about the other bits.
