Your very *long* posting failed to describe in which way the dotnet
target varies from traditional targets.  Microsoft's Visual Studio
handles building for .net very similarly to traditional binaries.  It
uses "normal" object files and "normal" DLLs.  These apparently
"normal" files have had their format extended to support .net.  For
the C language, Microsoft's Visual Studio is able to link with
traditional binary libraries.  If the Unix dotnet target uses a
similar paradigm, then compiling for dotnet could be as simple as
adding some CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS, LDFLAGS, and LIBS, options.

What does compilation of a dotnet library (.net assembly) and
compilation of dotnet dependent programs look like under Unix?
