The Mono Debugger today supports x86 and x86-64 platforms on Linux only.

Porting the debugger to more platforms is something we want to do, but
it is a lower priority that fixing the known bugs on the debugger, and
since Martin is also the maintainer of generics in the compiler, porting
the debugger is also a lower priority than coping with these bugs.
