[Mono-list] Improvements for the new Windows installers

First of all, thanks for taking care of the Windows installers and proving
an updated version with the latest release :)

The wrapper shell scripts for the mono tools like al, xbuild, etc... in
this new installer are using cygpath to convert paths, which makes them
unusable in a msys/mingw environment. cygpath should be used conditionally
when used with cygwin and it's not even needed when used with msys.
Since all of them are using "cygpath -w /path/to/dir", for now as a
workaround I have created a shell script named cygpath that does:
echo $2

Another improvements for the installers would be to set an environment
variable with the installation path like MONO_ROOT, as it's easier to use
it than gathering this info from the registry.
