Getting myself going I can do by just hacking the Makefiles if necessary
and I agree being able to compile isn't that much work (I think). But not
everything is parameterized correctly yet e.g. whether to do a PIC
compile or not (unless we say everything is compiled as PIC). 

More problematic is the shared library link step which needs
parameterizing on library extension and on command which it isn't
yet and some switches like -Wl,-soname,libMonoPosixHelper.dll.so
are somewhat more problematic to set up (on HPUX for example
this is just irrelevant and causes complete failure if left in).

My main question was whether to go forward by working
on the makefiles or moving the code..
