Ok, is there some other difference at the instruction set level between the
netwinder and cats systems?  The mono build failures are very consistent in
happening only on the netwinder systems AFAICS, and I'm pretty sure that
there isn't a kernel difference between the two groups of autobuilders that
would account for it.
