Hi folks,

    Today, I gave my first try to mono, on a FreeBSD 4.6 system. I had
some trouble compiling it ( without the garbage collector ), due to the
fact that the SIGRTMIN doesn't exists on freebsd. I had to hack
mono/metadata/threads.c on line 1102, and replace SIGRTMIN with SIGKILL,
but I don't know if it will cause any problem. I also had to disable the
SIGRTMIN catching code in mono/jit/jit.c to make it compile.
    Furthermore, after compiling the Boehm garbage collector, mono
doesn't compile, didn't the time to investiguate this issue.
    Finally, the xsp ( 0.2 ) makefile doesn't seem to be freebsd's make
compliant, as it uses an unknown -C option.

    Hope this comments will help, sorry if these problems were already
