I have successfully built Mono on Mac OS 10.4.11 and can run commandline
But when launching a program that uses Windows.Forms, I get this kind of
error :

Unhandled Exception: System.ArgumentException: The requested FontFamily

I thought I was missing some X11 fonts, so I have installed xorg-fonts but
it still does not work.
