I get the following when trying to build my app for iOS. It fails whether linking is enabled or not.
AOT Compilation exited with code 134, command:

Please include your full build logs, crash reports (if any), test case (to reproduce) and all version informations.
The easiest way to get exact version information is to use the "Xamarin Studio" menu, "About Xamarin Studio" item, "Show Details" button and copy/paste the version informations (you can use the "Copy Information" button).
This happens when compiling Xamarin.iOS.dll and not user code, so it should work for everyone, or fail for everyone, so it looks pretty strange.

What about in Visual Studio 2017?
I've been able to resolve the issue. My iOS project was referencing Xamarin.iOS.dll from an old location. By removing the HintPath from the csproj I was able to build the project correctly.
Old HintPath: C:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\Xamarin.iOS\v1.0\Xamarin.iOS.dll
Path after removal: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional\Common7\IDE\ReferenceAssemblies\Microsoft\Framework\Xamarin.iOS\v1.0\Xamarin.iOS.dll
