Nothing Mono-specific. You could try overriding CC with gcc followed  
by arguments, can't check right now whether I did that (usually that's  
only necessary for 64-bit builds). The ./configure output should  
indicate the sizeof(void*) as 4 if compiling 32-bit, obviously. I  
don't know the Fedora buildsys so am clueless what rejecting might  
deliver as output - do you have access to config.log or any other  
source of log messages?

NAnt, MonoDevelop and Boo I haven't tried on that platform.
