From https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=687082.


Mono for Android applications provide compilation symbols, but it looks like
that doesn't happen on the class library side. Is it possible to provide them
there too? This would make it easier to write cross-platform libraries.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a Mono for Android class library
2. Build
Actual Results:  
No Android compilation symbols are provided

Expected Results:  
Android compilation symbols should be provided


Oh, I didn't mean debugging symbols, sorry for the confusion. I'm referring to
conditional build symbols (Project Properties -> Build -> Conditional Build
Symbols). For apps there are a bunch depending on the version, like
__ANDROID__, but I don't see any added for class libraries.

Added for the next release.

Thanks for the suggestion!
