I have been building on OSX. It does work but with
some problems. 

The area I am most looking at is loading native OSX
resources from within mono. OSX does not use standard
shared objects like those from the windows and Linux
world, so it is tricky. 

My mainn goal is to make a Cocoa# library, but there
will have to be more ground work done before that.
