Thanks for all the input and help.

Well, it seems building the "core" is not hard if you make sure (on 
Solaris 10) that you use GNU packages and not the SUN ones (gmake, 
libtool, and everything else). I can build "mono" from trunk or 2-0. but 
the problems start with mcs... I'm now following the instructions sent 
by Geoff (basically using

I'll also publish the VMWare box so anyone can try :-)

Following this guide the only thing I realize I missed is the LDFLAGS

Yes, this guide was helpful building 1.1.13 (almost two years ago 
already), but now all those tricks are not needed anymore... You can get 
the whole c code build easily... The "problem" (or mine, at least) seems 
to be the classes
