So, if I can summarize:

1. Don't even try building mono-tools on a Mac against the packaged version
of Mono (.dmg)
2. It will be hell to try to build mono-tools on a Mac even if you built
Mono from source.
3. Building/running this on Windows would be a non-starter.

So my bottom line in order to get mono-tools (specifically gui-compare)
running is to use Linux, and probably in my case since I only have Mac and
Windows machines, I should just use the Virtual PC or VMWare downloads of
Mono and try to build mono-tools from there.

Would you agree? Any other, more efficient ideas?

(btw, TextEdit on Mac auto saves in rtf -- I didn't even think about it)
