Description Chris Hamons 2012-04-13 15:43:25 UTC
I am unable to build even a simple MonoMac project via mdtool if I specify AnyCPU. 

/Applications/MonoDevelop.app/Contents/MacOS/mdtool build "Scratch.sln" -t:Build -c:"Debug|AnyCPU"

Steps to reproduce:

1) Open monodevelop
2) New empty MonoMac project
3) Save, quit
4) Run mdtool as noted above, crash with "Object reference not set to an instance of an object"
5) Run mdtool with -c:"Debug|AnyCPU" remove, no crash.

This doesn't seem to happen on non MonoMac projects.
