You are trying to bundle all the executables in to one file right? Someone
else might be able to comment, but my understanding is that mkbundle is only
supposed to work on linux, macbundle on mac and on windows you can just
directly distribute the .exe.

Can I ask why you are trying to embed the runtime?  It's a default
installation on windows, runs faster with the MS version, you will likely
avoid a lot of hassle and the installation will be smaller.  You can also
directly combine all your files in to a single .NET assembly, so it would
really only be the runtime you are missing.

This is actually getting pretty ridiculous. When the mono people see the
word "windows", it's like "yeah.. move on". It seems not a single one of the
community actually cares about the issue, which is extremely annoying. 

The issue I was having was that mkbundle was incorrectly passing the gcc
compile command to the windows command line. Go figure right, another
WINDOWS bug. It was passing I think double quotes or singular quotes with
the pkg-config switch, I don't remember. Either way, it was passing quotes,
which the windows command line does not recognize with that particular
command. I had to manually run the compile command myself passing in 'back
ticks' instead of the quotes.
