mono/mcs is now only build on i386 powerpc s390. The maintainers
didn't seem to have filed a bug report against ftp.debian.org to
remove the binaries of the arches that are not supported. From
what I understand they never really were supported, it just was
able to build "something" that wasn't very useful.
There is also mono-mint which is no longer build on i386 and
powerpc which does have a removal request (#269523), which will
also prevent it from going to testing. In that bug report it's
also said that mono should only be build on the arches.

i386 doesn't get build by the buildds because the maintainer
uploaded that version.

All the packages (mono, mcs, libgdiplus) need to go in together.
So the bug on libgdiplus can be closed when mono is ready to
enter sarge. But indeed, we're also waiting for mcs to be build
