Congratulation on the new mono-0.24 release!

I ran the 0.24 build on Linux and there are a couple of things I would like
to request you for some clarification.

1. If I don't use the Garbage Collector and do a ./configure .. I get "GC :
Auto" which I reckon means that the build would go ahead without the use of
GC. Then why in case of mini do I still have the following :

    genmdesc_LDADD = $(libs) -lgc -lm

This broke my build and I had to remove -lgc to proceed.

2. I use gdb to debug into the, what is now called "oldmono" code:

    gdb --args oldmono helloworld.exe

but with the new mono(aot) whenever I open the gdb, it retorts with "mono:
is not in executable format : File format not recognized". What might be the
reason for this?

Thanks in advance,
