I followed those instructions, but copied mono sources manually from other 
svn directory.
I created file  makemono  containing

export MONO_LOCATION=/cygdrive/c/mono
export PATH=${PATH}:${MONO_LOCATION}/bin
export ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I ${MONO_LOCATION}/share/aclocal"
./autogen.sh --prefix=/mono/build
make install

Running this file causes error

andrus at andrus-notebook /mono/svn/mono
$ ./makemono
Running libtoolize...
You should add the contents of `/usr/share/aclocal/libtool.m4' to
 ...re/aclocall -I /cygdrive/c/mono
': No such file or directorydirectory `/cygdrive/c/mono

**Error**: aclocal failed. This may mean that you have not
installed all of the packages you need, or you may need to
set ACLOCAL_FLAGS to include "-I $prefix/share/aclocal"
for the prefix where you installed the packages whose
macros were not found
./makemono: line 6: $'make\r': command not found
make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.

I dont understand how to fix this error.  It complains that /cygdrive/c/mono
does not exist.
I verified that this directory exists:

andrus at andrus-notebook /mono/svn/mono
$ ls /cygdrive/c/mono
Mono.url              ReleaseNotes.txt  include  man       unins000.dat
MonoDocWeb.url        bin               lib      mono.ico  unins000.exe
MonoReleaseNotes.url  etc               make     share     xulrunner
