Mono JIT compiler version 4.3.2 (mono-4.3.2-branch/a49236e Fri Jan 15 20:15:07 EST 2016)

Every time i try to build XS i get this error:

/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/4.3.2/lib/mono/4.5/Microsoft.Common.targets: error : PCL Reference Assemblies not installed.

I just confirmed that the MRE doesn't include the PCLs, as we suspected on Slack. The MDK contains the PCLs.
Comment 2 Alan McGovern 2016-01-29 13:23:54 UTC
The latest 4.3.2 MDKs are definitely missing PCLs still. I'm reopening this to track the problem
Comment 3 Alan McGovern 2016-01-29 13:26:40 UTC
If you clean out your `/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions` directory you won't be able to compile mono if you then install 4.3.2.

Comment 4 Alexander Köplinger [MSFT] 2016-01-29 13:31:10 UTC
This is fixed, I confirmed that contains the PCLs.
