When using Cygwin to compile, you can specify "--disable-cygwin" on the 
configure line to force it to build a version that will run stand-alone under 
Windows.  This is how most people normally build a "MingW" version.

Hmmm.  It looks like it didn't properly detect that your system is Win32-based 
when pnet was built.  The detection is done in "pnet/include/il_values.h".  
You'll have to figure out why it didn't detect it and let us know.

And I don't understand the question.  It should just find it when you 
configure and build the system normally.  There should be no situation under 
which you need to tell csant where the source directory is unless you are 
running the tools manually.  Which isn't recommended.

I did just confirm that pnetlib has some problems when building in a separate 
build directory.  I suggest sticking with building in the source directory 
for now.  One less source of problems to deal with.  I will try to figure out 
what the problem is once DotGNU 0.1 is out of the way.

I recommend getting Cygwin and configuring with "--disable-cygwin".  That 
configuration has been tested extensively and is known to work.
