Another interesting tool to look at would be bakefile.  I don't believe
it has mono support at this point, but it seems to be approaching the
same sort's of issues, and already has quite a bit of support for visual
studio and makefiles and several other output types.  I like their
approach.  This is the build tool being developed for WxWidgets.
