Monolite is platform-independent bytecode.

If you're getting a core dump, that comes from your mono runtime port.

In general, the low-hanging fruit for getting the runtime working are
the tests in mono/mini - compile them on a Linux box (cd mono/mini &&
make check), transfer them over, and get all of them (8 I think) working
without failures.
