You should use mono 1.1.18 or the just released 1.2.

I suggest using scratchbox to cross-compile mono and any other app
if you can't afford the time to compile on the target system.

You need to use cs1.exe here, obviously.

You may be using an arm system with the new EABI instead of the
current Linux ABI. The new ABI uses soft-float/vfp instead of the FPA
floating point instruction set. Soft-float is not yet implemented in the
mono JIT, though I'm working on it. In the meantime you should likely
use the current/old ABI.
