[Mono-dev] C# Compiler - Chicken and the Egg

I was reading online that Mono's C# compiler is written in C#. That
made me woder, how did you compile the Mono C# Compiler for the first
time. (This is the old chicken and the egg problem.) I am wondering
how this obstacle was overcome, and why the compiler wasn't written in
a language like C, that could already be compiled on Linux.
