I've followed everything in your instructions up to this point:

> Next, download and build the ValaBinding source from monodevelop.com. 

Here I have a problem.  The monodevelop-vala-2.4 bindings compile with the
old configure, make, make install, which requires a BASH shell.  

Valac gcc alone does not have a bash shell, so I installed mingw and tried
to use msys shell to compile.  

Unfortunately it fails on ./configure:

$ ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking how to create a ustar tar archive... gnutar
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for mono... /c/Program Files (x86)/Mono-2.8/bin//mono
checking for gmcs... /c/Program Files (x86)/Mono-2.8/bin//gmcs
checking for pkg-config... /c/Program Files (x86)/Mono-2.8/bin//pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... ./configure: line 2754:
/c/Program: No such file or directory
checking for UNMANAGED_DEPENDENCIES_MONO... configure: error: Please install
mono version 2.4 or later to install ValaBinding.
Please see http://www.mono-project.org/ to download latest mono sources or

(Mono 2.8 is installed, so the above error is mistaken.)

What is the best advice here?  Is there a way to run the configure script
with just valac?
