I have noticed the recent deprecation of xbuild. However the repo does not have a way to compile MSBuild for mono and install it with the makefiles present in the repo itself. Will it be distributed with mono, or is the recommended approach to clone, build and install MSBuild separately?
Attempting to build msbuild separately myself resulted in a futile attempt. Their bootstrapping script is broken.
Take a look at https://github.com/mono/linux-packaging-msbuild/blob/master/debian/rules - particularly the override_dh_auto_build and override_dh_auto_install rules.
If bootstrapping is broken on your distro, try https://github.com/directhex/monodevelop-flatpak/blob/master/patches/msbuild/runtime.patch
I meant bootstrapping msbuild itself.
I filed a report on github on that.
We have our own msbuild packages now.
