Hi Bryan,
You just need to do 'make clean' and  'make install' in the
Managed.Windows.Forms directory.
Once you do that successfully, you should be able to
compile your simple apps using following command,

$ mcs -r:System.Drawing -r:System.Windows.Forms <app.cs>

By simple apps, I mean to say the apps that use only the
implemented controls.
For more information on this topic, please have a look at the
mail archives. If that does not help, please let us know.

I read a mail from Jordi last month where he advised
another user to "start playing with the new effort
that lives in Managed.Windows.Forms directory".

Managed.Windows.Forms.Form but the compiler can't find
that type and I don't see an assembly that looks
