Apparently Mono's new garbage collector requires __thread (pthread
thread local storage) which is not supported by Mac OS X.
configure: error: The SGEN garbage collector depends on a working
__thread implementation, and either --with-thread=pthread was passed
to configure, or the configure test for __thread failed.
Since Mac doesn't support thread local storage (TLS) via __thread, are there
ever plans to implement Sgen GC on Mac?
For those interested, here's some historical reading on this for those
Particularly interesting is Paolo Molaro in here:
