[Mono-list] Problem with Mono on Arm target

I have just completed cross compiling mono-1.2.4 for an Arm target
(using the montavist pro 4 corss compilation toolkit that came with the
development platform).  I had to do a number of hacky things to the
configure script to make it work including '--with-gc=none' (I will try
and sort this problem out later).  It all compiles now fine, but I have
a problem when executing a simple test case that should output the
current time.
Unhandled Exception: System.TypeInitializationException: An exception
was thrown by the type initializer for System.TimeZone --->
System.ExecutionEngineException: SIGILL

My initial thought is that there is a problem with static
initialization, can anyone shed some light on this problem?
