 2. The error output above is in fact now the same error output
 produced on Windows with 1.1.15 - I had not noticed before that the
 error on Windows was different. The batch file used to launch xsp
 1.1.15 on Windows does indeed set the path so mbas can be found.

+VB support is going to undergo a big overhaul.
+mbas is known to contain many bugs and it is not able to cope with
+anything but the most simple pages (if it compiled in the past, it
+likely generated wrong code).
+We will be building a new compiler from scratch (a community developer
+has already started work on this).
+We have removed VB.NET as one of the deliverable features for Mono
+1.2, there is no way we can fix the current compiler to work.
