[Mono-dev] Win32 build errors (recent change)

Hi Jonathan,

I could be wrong but what I basically did was to disable the "warning as
error" thing.
This enables you to build the thing (at least I was able to build it)...
I did mention this because Rob wanted to build mono for windows and it
should be possible with the patch.

This is in no sense a solution to the problem (this is why i called it a
temporary patch) and should not be pushed,
sorry when it did sound like that.

Note though: the other patches that are included should be pushed as they
fix very basic errors (thats why I made them extra)

For reference:

Hope this helps to clarify things.
Have a nice weekend,
