mysql-connector-net-5.0.2 does not compile on Mono 1.2 in Linux. I am using mono 1.2 and nant-0.85. First I have got nant errors about ${nunit.dir} not defined with both mono-1.0 and mono-2.0 targets. Both these targets set nunit-lib property instead of nunit.dir (nunit-lib is being set later in 'client' target). Secondly, mono-2.0 uses some windows-like absolute path for nunit-lib, which is wrong for Linux. I have commented out all nunit portions from Client.build to proceed further, then mono compiler complained about:

1) Namespace for MySql types could not be found - this is because Client.build contains:
<include name="mysqlclient/Types/*.cs"/>
while directory 'types' is with lowercase 't'

2) System.Configuration.Install.dll and System.Windows.Forms.dll references were missing.

3) I had to remove some #if MONO parts from the code as this is already fixed in Mono 1.2

4) mysql-connector-net-5.0.2/mysqlclient/Installer.cs, line 111 contains PerformanceCategory.Create () call with 4 arguments; there is no such function with given property types in Mono, workaround is to remove PerformanceCounterCategoryType.SingleInstance parameter (btw. there is no such enum in Mono)

How to repeat:
Try to compile mysql-connector-net-5.0.2 with Mono 1.2 and nant 0.85 under Linux.

Fixed however the 5.0 tree is not currently coded to work with mono 1.0 and .net 1.0.  We are planning on fixing this in the future.
