- you also need a path to an installed mono in order to build mono
apparently, not sure if you already did that or not - that's also
described on that page<br>

<div>I tried mightily to get latest Mono to build under MS
Windows, starting with Rob's patch to help that along, and
finally got stumped. Attached are two patches, one with
changes I know are good, and one with changes that shouldn't
<div>It turns out I hadn't installed sed, and the Mono build
scripts use sed liberally. So one of the good patches is to
add AC_PROG_SED to configure.in, so its existence is tested
for. (Modifying every reference to "sed" to use "$(SED)"
instead is left to a future date. ;-)</div>
<div>Does mcs recognize MS-Windows-style slash-prefixed options,
or only Linux-style dash-prefixed options? In my build, the
slash-prefixed options ("/nologo", "/noconfig", and
"/optimize") were being mistaken for pathnames. The "hack"
patch fixes two files, changing slash-options to dash-options.
I didn't think this was necessary?</div>
<div>Finally, my build died at "MCS [basic] System.Core.dll",
because it couldn't find mscorlib.dll and System.dll . The
second section of my good patch
modifies mcs/build/profiles/basic.make to look like the other
profile makefiles, i.e. by adding
"-lib:$(topdir)/class/lib/$(PROFILE)" to PROFILE_MCS_FLAGS.
And both mcs/class/lib/basic/mscorlib.dll and
mcs/class/lib/System.dll both exist. But it didn't help; the
build still dies there. So I'm stumped.</div>
<div>Has anyone else gotten further building Mono under MS
