[Mono-dev] Compiling Mono v2.4 RC2 (Solaris 10 SPARCv9)

Decided to try the compilation technique described in
http://www.mono-project.com/Mono:ARM, which, If I understand correctly,
basically divides the compilation sequence into two: (1) native code, which
must be compiled on native platform, and (2) managed code, which can be
compiled anywhere.
The  ./configure --disable-mcs-build ; gmake ; gmake install sequence ran
without incident on my Solaris10 SPARC, except for what I think was the
final make stage - 'gmake doc'. I can live without docs for the time being,
so no showstopper. Building mono from source on Linux is a breeze – on Linux
(Ubuntu 7.0) I ran the regular ./configure ; gmake ; gmake install. As
described in the link above, I copied the Linux output to my Solaris, and
then superimposed the Solaris output on top.  

'mono –-version' gave me a promising:
Mono JIT compiler version 2.4 (tarball Sun Apr  5 17:59:24 IDT 2009)
Copyright (C) 2002-2008 Novell, Inc and Contributors. www.mono-project.com
        TLS:           normal
        GC:            System Boehm (with typed GC)
        SIGSEGV:       normal
        Notification:  Thread + polling
        Architecture:  sparc
        Disabled:      none

However, running anything under this mono (e.g. mcs) ended with the same
while (true) loop. Darn. Next time I look at this. I'll run my mono 2.4
under gdb using the tips in http://www.mono-project.com/Debugging as see
what I can learn.
