This case is within Wine's scope, and Wine ships with a build of Mono
for this purpose. See http://wiki.winehq.org/Mono. The MS
implementation of the .NET Framework can also be installed and tends
to work better.

We don't have a replacement for regasm yet, but depending on the
extent of your program's needs, you might be able to use a .reg and
.tlb file from regasm on Windows.

Is this software publicly available? It could be a useful test case
for COM integration.
