There's an x86 port of NETMF in the emulator. You might be able to hack that to work on the Intel chips, although you'd lose some of the benefits of the lower-power ARM micros.
NETMF is designed for Cortex-M class, low-cost processors. The Cortex-A and low-end x86 chips are generally used for PC-class motherboards which run higher-end operating systems (with much higher power consumption, higher flash and RAM requirements, higher component counts driving up assembly cost, etc.)
I met with Intel and talked about potentially using their chips on future Netduino boards a while ago. Right now those low-end x86 chips are just too expensive and power-hungry compared to ARM technology. I do love the direction they're going though; hopefully in a few years Intel will have something in the Cortex-M class (versus Cortex-A).
