(Responding to the list anyways, I'm assuming others are interested in 
this...  There seems to be a pretty decent response in here when the 
subject of OSX comes up -- I for one would like to see mono be actually 
usable.  =) )

I don't know that anyone's actively working on it.  I've given it a shot 
a couple of times off and on but the problems in getting mcs to work are 
beyond my coding abilities.  Right now mono builds (and runs for some 
very minor things), but fails when building mcs with a bus error. 
(after warning about using non-atomic functions).

Feel free to give it a shot, if you get it working let me know, and I'll 
package mcs in fink (mono is already, but only because some people asked 
for it on the list... it's not really stable yet).
