Just to elaborate on this; there are three main pieces that need to
be done in varying states of completeness:
#1: Port boehm gc. This is completed and in SVN with some minor
changes to my patchset from paolo.
#2: Port the ucontext stuff to the new darwin structures. This is
trivial and is done.
#3: Align the stack to a 16-byte boundary for all callers. TODO
#1 and #2 allow the system to pass make rcheck; but not having #3
breaks a ton of icalls and pretty much all pinvokes. I'm working on
finishing that; and paolo has mentioned that he will dedicate a few
cycles to it.
So as miguel says; 1.1.14 we should be shipping a x86-MAC dmg of the
runtime as well. Universal binaries will be a while out (unless
someone else wants to tackle it). Andy Satori started looking at
universal binaries and stated that glib had a few issues with the
auto* method of making a universal binary. It should be noted that
apples autotools* provided method will _NOT_ work for mono because of
how our ./configure works; and I'm sure we have some endian macros on
there from glib that will be broken too.
