Someone will have to answer that kind of question for me, because I am
deaf. ;-)

Mono 1.1.7 works a lot better with FreeBSD 5.4 and 6.x now so far, but
still need a few works left to get same as how Mono runs on Linux.
DragonFly users and/or developers can take the look at 'FreeBSD' define in
the source codes to see if it needs to add 'DragonFly' define too.

As for Beagle, I haven't actually take a look at it yet but you can take a
look here.

I am helping with tmclaugh with Mono and other stuff in BSD# project.

Bill Middleton did a very good job with get many patches into Mono and now
it will compiling in FreeBSD almost vanilla without any of patch. Also,
it got Mono runs a lot better on FreeBSD. I think, FreeBSD -CURRENT
libthr and DraonFly libthread_xu are near same. Mono runs better on
FreeBSD -CURRENT libthr than libpthread (KSE).
