1. I added c:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Silverlight\v4.0\Libraries\Client directory to 'Assembly Folders' In MonoDevelop  (Tools -> Options -> Preferences -> Build -> Assembly Folders -> Brows & Add)

2. In my project I added Assembly System.Xml.Serialization.dll reference from that folder.

3. Then viewed project file source I found the following fragment:
    <Reference Include="System.Xml.Serialization">
