[Mono-osx] mono for OSX - Intel?

Hi Mike,


I used a combination of darwinports and the svn source to get it compiled on
my macbook and it has been running very well for the past 3 months.  It is
my primary development environment... I build corp .net apps for a living.

The full dep tree is a nightmare for anyone but the hardcore, what with all
the "lightly" documented build variables for each lib, etc.  Tried it, too
much of a pain. So I used darwinports for all that, based on the monodevelop
faq for building mono. When I got as far as mono, I switched to building
from source, so I get all the mactel fixes that may not be in the
darwinports mono builds yet.

You have to adjust your DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH accordingly, and there are some
niggly bits around the image format libs that now ship with osx and
conflict, but there are workarounds if you are creative...

I use XSP for my ASP.NET development, and even have Zedgraph working very
nicely with libgdiplus, also built from svn.

So it is possible :)

I hesitate to list all the steps in detail, as it seems the mono folks would
be producing a universal binary sooner rather then later.  Kinda silly not
to now, PPC is dead.
