Is there a problem with that? Mono comes with a script called "" for cross-compiling on linux. I use that for every mono release since about 2.2 as I need a little customization, changing the heap setting, before they get the new garbage collector code scheduled for 2.8(?) ready. I only rebuild the runtime - not the class libraries, so I stop the build in the middle.

There are some dependency differences (depending on different versions of dependent dll's) against MSVC builds, file naming differences (the mono dll is called libmono.dll in one but just mono.dll in the other - I filed a bug for it and it is still open), and dependencies on gcc_s*.dll from exception unwinding, but it is basically inter-operable - as I swap one part of the stock msvc build with a custom mingw cross-compiled part for every release for much of the last two years now.
