Er.  Kind of stole the installed directory off my windows box, then used
winetricks to install msxml3 and vcrun2005 (and Mono, but I'm not sure
if that was actually needed).  This may count as cheating, but I don't
have any need to run the GUI side of things on the linux box, so if I
can get the command line tools to run I'm happy.
