I'm a VS2005 (RC) user, but am new to Mono and am interested in
getting my VS2005 projects to build on Mono.  A few questions:

1) What's the best way to get VS2005 projects to build on Mono?  I saw
a post in the November archives that Prj2Make has yet to be updated to
handle VS2005 .csproj files.  Is there an alternative?  Is the only
way just to write a makefile?  How about NAnt?

2) Is it possible to run msbuild on mono?  I tried with little
success, but I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong.

3) Relative to MSBuild, how complete is XBuild?  What functionality
does it have currently?

4) Will XBuild work on VS2005 .csproj files?  I tried building a
default skeleton VS2005 WinForms project with XBuild, but it throws an

Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide.
