-Notes from https://github.com/mono/mono:
+Note:
- Mono build relies on a working Mono C# compiler to compile itself
(also known as bootstrapping).
+ If you don't have a working Mono installation, the build process would
+ use the 'monolite' distribution, which contains just enough to run the
+ 'mcs' compiler.
+ This is considered a "slightly more risky approach" to build Mono, so
+ this SlackBuild uses a full featured precompiled Mono Compiler to
+ bootstrap.
