[Mono-list] Building Mono libraries with SS CLI

Is it possible to use System.Data.dll and all ADO.NET classes by copying
the necessary dlls to SS CLI on MacOSX?

I haven't tried it, but I am hoping it will work, because Mono ADO.NET
and SQL Server provider is written completely in C# (correct me if I am
wrong), so theoretically it should work with SS CLI on MacOSX? Will
there be any issues?

Secondly, what if I copy Microsoft's System.Windows.Forms.dll to Redhat
8.0 on x86 platform and try to use it with Mono. Will the Microsoft SWF
use Winelib and be able to run Windows Forms on Linux?

You can tweak the makefiles to compile the code, its plain C# code.
