[Mono-dev] Mono for Windows test build

First of all, thanks for taking care of the Windows installers and proving
an updated version with the latest release :)
The wrapper shell scripts for the .bat tools (al.bat, xbuild.bat, etc...)
in this new installer are using cygpath to convert paths, which makes them
unusable in a msys/mingw environment. cygpath should be used conditionally
when used within cygwin and it's not needed when used with msys.
Since all of them are using "cygpath -w /path/to/dir", for now as a
workaround I have created a shell script named cygpath that does:
Another improvements for the installers would be to set an environment
variable with the installation path like MONO_ROOT, as it's easier to use
it than gathering this info from the registry.
On Windows XP, with SP3 and the VC redist package installed, mono.exe and
mono-sgen.exe won't start with the following error:
mono.exe is not a valid Win32 application.
Other binaries like pkg-config.exe or mprof-report.exe can be run correctly.
