[props] "Linker Behavior" drop-down menu shows inaccurate default value of "Don't Link" for MtouchLink property

This is similar to Bug 57005 for the Android project properties, but iOS project properties bug still affects versions where Bug 57005 is fixed.  Perhaps a similar fix needs to be applied for the iOS project properties?




## Regression status: regression between XamarinVS 4.4.0.34 (3f99c5a) and 4.5.0.476 (1be4f0c)

> BAD:  XamarinVS           (60c3d0e) [*] + Visual Studio 2015 Update 3
> BAD:  XamarinVS 4.5.0.486 (fec6f88)     + Visual Studio 2017 version 15.2 (26430.13)
> BAD:  XamarinVS 4.5.0.476 (1be4f0c)     + Visual Studio 2015 Update 3
> GOOD: XamarinVS 4.4.0.34  (3f99c5a)     + Visual Studio 2015 Update 3
[*] Unpublished development build for the 15.3 target milestone




## Steps followed to test

1. Create a new "Visual C# > iOS > iPhone > Single View App (iPhone)" project.  (You can also double-check the generated .csproj file to ensure that the "Debug|iPhone" configuration does not contain an `<MtouchLink>` element.)

2. Set the active solution configuration to "Debug|iPhone".

3. Open the project properties.




## BAD Results with XamarinVS 4.5.0.486

The "Linker Behavior" drop down menu shows a value of "Don't Link".




## GOOD Results with XamarinVS 4.4.0.34 (3f99c5a)

The "Linker Behavior" drop down menu shows a value of "Link SDK assemblies only".
