[Mono-list] mono port over other OS?

It should be possible.  There are people working on porting Mono to Mac
OS X, S/390, and Sparc platforms.

However, each of these ports have required some changes to Mono, from
configure.in changes, to providing/replacing "missing" constants for
functions, to replacing some threading functions.

So it should be possible, but not necessarily easy.

As for documentation on the functions/APIs that need to be changed, I
don't know of any such list.  It seems that the typical approach is to
compile Mono; any compiler errors are functions that need to be changed.

However, I haven't participated in any of the porting efforts; I've only
learned this from being on the listserv and reading the CVS commits.
