Syscall is a class in the Mono.Unix.Native namespace.  The above line should be:

using Mono.Unix.Native;

Then your calls to Syscall should work.  You still need to compile
with "-r:Mono.Posix", I believe.

MonoDoc is a great utility to help you explore the current Mono APIs
when you have trouble finding or using certain pieces.

Have fun,

P.S. Sorry for two emails, Neil... forgot to reply-all!
