Building Mono on Windows

by Miguel de Icaza

Kevin and Francisco have published an article on Building Mono on Windows.

Paco said:

This article was aimed at folks that are consumers of Mono maybe even contributors of patches and documentation. My approach when collaborating with Kevin Shockey was to give departmental developers a way to build the latest and greatest. These are the folks that may have even reported a bug to the list and gotten a reply like:

"Is fixed on SVN".

The twist on this witting is that the build approach does not use MS .NET Framework, rather uses Mono to build Mono. We will later put out a set of modified instructions to uncomment a couple of lines that we suggest creating on the user's .bashrc file to enable the build using csc.exe rather than mcs.
