Some time ago, I played around with mono, and I even made a (non-imported) 
pkgsrc package for

The 100% CPU seems to be some deadlock problem. Although it might sound 
strange, this problem WILL disappear if you use (!) a slower CPU.

I can reproduce this, as a colleague and me have both NetBSD 2.0.2
installed here, on identical hardware. He configured the bios to slow
down CPU on load, mine is configured to speed up the fans instead.

It compiles fine on this machine - and stalls on mine, as you've also
seen it.

Btw, I confiured mono to use the boehm-gc collector.

Sorry, I sill don't have a solution to this (and the project switched
from C# to C++).
