Well, '.so' was what mono expected for a dynamically loaded lib, so cmake
isn't really wrong as the MH_BUNDLE resource doesn't have to be given a
specific name. I've just added a line to create the symlink on Mac OS X to

The main problem is that you need to use 3 different shells mingw, cygwin and
DOS. It seems a complete mess if you're used to unix/linux/mac os etc, but it
