Mono JIT compiler version 4.3.2 (mono-4.3.2-branch/a49236e Fri Jan 15 20:15:07 EST 2016)
Every time i try to build XS i get this error:
/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/4.3.2/lib/mono/4.5/Microsoft.Common.targets: error : PCL Reference Assemblies not installed.
I just confirmed that the MRE doesn't include the PCLs, as we suspected on Slack. The MDK contains the PCLs.
The latest 4.3.2 MDKs are definitely missing PCLs still. I'm reopening this to track the problem
If you clean out your `/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions` directory you won't be able to compile mono if you then install 4.3.2.
Example from wrench: https://gist.github.com/alanmcgovern/0b6e84d642119c75b505
Mono used: http://storage.bos.internalx.com/mono-4.3.2/f9/f9eae9f4bc9755f5c7c28c6b09b89c1ffc72b4c5/MonoFramework-MDK-184.108.40.2066.macos10.xamarin.universal.pkg
This is fixed, I confirmed that 220.127.116.118 contains the PCLs.
