I managed to compile Mono 0.28 from sources on my Linux box and on my iBook. 0.26 wouldn't compile on my Mac as it failed to find a file necessary for the JIT (there is no working JIT for the PPC architecture, yet).

The first mini-test I do with a Mono installation is running Ant's tests. The tests for <csc> pass, which doesn't mean much more than that Mono's C# compiler is compatible enough to Microsoft's to at least pass the simplistic tests.

One small tweak to Ant's tests was necessary: I had to force Ant to use mint instead of mono as the runtime (i.e. no JIT) for my Mac as all the tests would have failed otherwise.
