[Mono-devel-list] RIP: 'make bootstrap'

I'll be shortly committing a series of patches to the SVN repository
that should obviate the need for running 'make bootstrap' when
developing on CVS.

Now, the 'mcs' tree is for all intents and purposes a dependency of the
'mono' tree.  'make all' in the mono tree will always build in the 'mcs'
tree too.

Hopefully everything should be fine.  The only caveat is that people
who're used to running 'make all' inside the mcs tree will have to 
run 'make all' in the 'mono' tree at least once.

So, summary

  * 'make bootstrap' is gone: Just do 'make'

  * Do a 'make all' in the mono/ tree at least once before running make
     inside the mcs/ tree

  * monolite should continue to work: 'make get-monolite-latest && make'
