Can't build on Archlinux #86

I have yet to succeed building F# on my Archlinux box - I have tried a few things & I am not sure what is going wrong. The error I am getting does not make any sort of sense to me (they fixed it in Mono on OSX but nothing else because nothing else needed it? IDK!??!) Maybe i'm asking in the wrong place but hopefully I will at least be pointed in the right place. Here is what i get from trying to build from the AUR (and no this isn't being run as root - i already saw that bug report) - i get a similar error message when i try to build from the git repo.

serialhex@multi-hex [~]$ yaourt -S fsharp-git

Small update:
- depend on mono = 2.10.2 (the current)
- use https for cloning git repository, more firewall friendly

Renaming binaries, to avoid name collision with scala, is no longer needed, it's now done in the fsharp repository.

Debug info from gdb:

Got a SIGABRT while executing native code. This usually indicates
a fatal error in the mono runtime or one of the native libraries 
used by your application.

It must be a Mono bug in the generational garbage collector (as the flag --gc=sgen is being used). Upgrade your mono version, maybe that fixes it.

Anyway we should not use sgen if Mono version detected during configure is older than 3.0.


beautiful! the latest "official" package archlinux supports is mono 2.10.8, i found a package in the aur for mono 3 and it works beautifully! no problems, thanks!!!

@knocte knocte configure: do not use SGen if Mono < 3.0
As pointed out in fsharp/fsharp#86 , Mono 2.10.x
may be still too unstable to use Mono's generational garbage collector.
