I recently found a problem trying to run Moonlight on an ARM5 based

The full details are  http://old.nabble.com/Moonlight-on-ARM-td27255440.html
here .

Basically , after building and installing mono 2.6.1 and moonlight 2.0
running mopen simpleclock from the command line, the following is produced.

I have tried to look into the code to find out what the issue is, but it
gets a bit confusing once you get into the native calls. Both normal mono
and winforms apps work correctly btw, this just affects moonlight. My Gut
feeling is that the moon native library is not being compiled with the
correct flags, having looked at the moonlight configure script there are
very few references to ARM in it (unlike the mono configure script).  

I did submit a but report 
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=573975 here  but I'm sure there
are more important things for the Mono dev's to work on.

I'm quite happy to try to fix this issue myself  and post a patch (I have
the hardware) but I need some pointers to get started. So does anyone has
any suggestions?
