Do you need something that will compile C and C++ or just C? Are you looking 
something with capabilities like MS's compiler that can interface with both 
existing C++ libs and C# code and has IJW ("it just works") marshaling?

The assemblies produced by the Portable.NET C compiler will run under Mono 
once you install the OpenSystem.C.dll and libc.dll assemblies.
