Well, I had some time last night to clone my fork of SpecFlow and go through
the source code.  After my initial inspection, I think there may be some
problems building some of the projects due to the dependency of MSBuild. 
After trying to compile my suspicion was correct.

I know Mono has xBuild, but does xBuild also have an API like
Microsoft.Build.BuildEngine or will I need to use an API that MonoDevelop
exposes to facilitate manipulating the project by adding files and etc.? 
Thanks for any information that will lead me down the right path to port
some of the SpecFlow code.
