[Mono-list] C++ to CIL compilers?

Are there any C++ to CIL compilers _except_ Visual C++? 

The idea of making component programming and reuse language independent
is IMO the best thing about .NET/Mono. But I hardly found any compiler
apart from MS's development suites targeting the CIL. As only a C#
compiler is planed as part of the Mono Project and as the GCC Project
does apparently not plan to add a CIL backend, do I have to invest a
substantial sum of money (that I don't have) in a set MS compilers to
start using Mono (using a language other than C#)?

Thanks for any advice,
