Very interesting, Scott. Thanks for your answers.
In the next months it's possible that I spend time studying NAnt and
NUnit stuff so if I have time I will have a look at it.
BTW (wondering again... :), it seems now that there is other viable
alternative (CMake ) which has been adopted by KDE guys . It seems
easier than auto-tools and multi-platform. Could we make the switch too
in MonoDevelop? (I mean, would it be desirable, as long as someone makes
a CMake add-in for example?) I guess that the main advantage would be to
no longer need Cygwin for the porting effort that is taking place now,
am I right?
