The preferred way is to use a shell-script wrapper.  This is used by all
programs shipped with mono (mcs, cilc, gacutil, etc.), e.g.:

	exec /usr/bin/mono /usr/lib/mono/1.0/mcs.exe "$@"

This is preferred as it will work on all Unix platforms without
requiring any special kernel modules (which frequently conflict with
Wine, since CIL programs use the same object code format as normal Win32
