stack overflow log

When building the F# compiler as detailed here: https://github.com/fsharp/fsharp I get a stack overflow, which I have attached.  

Ive tried using 3.2.3, 3.2.4 and also the latest Mono master 3.2.5: https://github.com/mono/mono/commit/54ecc9c6a18ca300ffdac495b5d3a611c80103fc

I believe that this is related to the reduction of the default stack size on osx Mavericks.  

This blocks the building of the F# compiler and also Monotouch which uses F# as a submodule.

Fixed in mono master d6673ca8ec854f291eb32c048446b3868b92de7a /fe80190fc4d2f880c92f06ecc94aa33d1ecbacb6.
We might want to consider issuing a new mono version with these changes.

No, 3.2.5 doesn't include that commit, it was branched back in october.
