If you want to compile or to run IronRuby on Mono, the following
information should be useful.

NAnt build file is available here:

When you run rbx.exe after building, you will meet "white on white"
text color problem (that is, if your terminal background is white).
For the time being, change the terminal background. :(

Use -X:TabCompletion option to avoid some keyboard input bugs.

You will see excessive debugging messages for the parser, and "Code
supposed to be unreachable" exception. These are caused by the same

ConditionalAttribute has no effect on template methods

Fix the bug, or workaround the bug, or add yourself to bug's CC, or
pester Mono people to up the priority (however this doesn't mean it
will be fixed faster). I just wanted to let you know what the problem
is. The problem is that conditional attribute doesn't work with
generics on Mono.
