libbfd is an abstraction layer for the different executable formats  
(as you probably know). It is needed to find symbol information when  
debugging non-managed code, and to find the debugger hooks in the mono  
runtime. And probably for reading coredumps and many other things as  
well. Only minimal changes were needed to make it work on Mac OS X  
(since it supports Mach-O out of the box). I presume the situation  
should be similar on windows as well.
