It seems the package for Mono in Guix uses a tarball that contains a lot of prebuilt DLLs. This doesn’t seem to have been mentioned when the package was introduced. Could it have been a mistake? Some related discussion: https://github.com/mono/mono/issues/7445 and also https://logs.guix.gnu.org/guix/2022-04-19.log#195614

If nobody volunteers to do the work necessary to get our mono package to
build without prebuilt binaries in the next 2 weeks, I suggest we remove
it from our collection. Only a handful package depend on it, most of
them optionally it seems, and the mono we carry is severely outdated
(2016).

What do you think?

I hope someone does the work, but if not, I don't see a problem with
removing it.

Agree.


Actually, there's more prebuilt binaries in Mono 6 (current version)


And it's impossible to remove these binaries (see https://github.com/dotnet/source-build/issues/1930)
