MD should not treat Mono.Posix as a framework assembly, ebacuse this breaks compatibility with compiling on .NET, were it certainly isn't a framework assembly.
For example, a Mono.Posix 188.8.131.52 reference in a 4.0 project on Windows will be handled literally, i.e. the assembly will have a reference to Mono.Posix 184.108.40.206 and Mono.Posix.dll will be local-copied into the bin folder.
On Mono, the reference will magically become a Mono.Posix 220.127.116.11 reference and the assembly will not be local-copied.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 1947 ***
Not a dup. One it about what MD itself references, the other is about how MD treats references.
We grab the assemblies from the Framework list. If we want it not to be a framework assembly, Mono itself should not list mono.posix in the framework directory.
We can special-case it, but there are multiple assemblies which fit this category.
