[Mono-dev] R <-> mono: linking to libmono.a on windows (cygwin) problems

Linking with libmono.a is not supported under Cygwin.
Moreover, linking a cygwin app with libmono.la (libmono.dll.a
-> mono.dll) would disable Mono's SIGSEGV handler. This means
that NullReferenceExceptions would crash your app.

> -lmono-2.0

Try g++ -mno-cywin ...

It should work if the R libs were compiled with -mno-cywin as well.
