msbuild gives me:

  Selected target framework: .NETFramework,v4.5; API: Unified
  Added assembly /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/4.8.0/lib/mono/4.5-api/mscorlib.dll
  Added assembly /Library/Frameworks/Xamarin.Mac.framework/Versions/

Where xbuild gives me:

  Selected target framework: .NETFramework,v4.5; API: Unified
  Added assembly /Library/Frameworks/Xamarin.Mac.framework/Versions/
  Added assembly /Library/Frameworks/Xamarin.Mac.framework/Versions/

This is not making 15.1

Repro project

This still seems to be broken for me.

Xamarin.Mac version:

 ✘  brajkovic@Junction  ~/Projects/ReadOnlyTest/ReadOnlyTestMacLib  cat /Library/Frameworks/Xamarin.Mac.framework/Versions/Current/Version

MSBuild /v:diag log: https://gist.github.com/bojanrajkovic/6356b1803002f21ee9ee9069e5834286#file-msbuild-vdiag-log
xbuild /v:diag log: https://gist.github.com/bojanrajkovic/6356b1803002f21ee9ee9069e5834286#file-xbuild-vdiag-log

Repro project is attached. Repro steps:

1. Unzip project.
2. cd ReadOnlyTestMacLib
3. msbuild /v:diagnostic

You'll see the 4.5-api mscorlib.dll being picked up and explicitly added as a /reference to the compiler command line. xbuild doesn't do this.
Comment 4 Bojan Rajkovic [MSFT] 2017-03-29 16:06:28 UTC
Forgot to mention my Mono version:

Mono JIT compiler version 4.8.0 (mono-4.8.0-branch/9d74414 Fri Mar 17 16:02:57 EDT 2017)

I tried the S.R.M fix by way of:

sudo cp /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/Current/lib/mono/msbuild/15.0/bin/Roslyn/System.Reflection.Metadata.dll /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/Current/lib/mono/msbuild/15.0/bin/

And that did not help.
Comment 5 Chris Hamons 2017-04-10 18:46:09 UTC
This looks fixed in 3.4 in Alpha.

                  FusionName=mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089

Please re-open / ping if you are not seeing it.

Hello @Chris Hamons 

Can you provide proper step or description for verify this bug.
Comment 7 Chris Hamons 2017-05-05 14:27:34 UTC
- Unzip attached project
- Use msbuild command line to build it with /v:diag
- Find the MMPTask in the log and verify we're calling it with /Library/Frameworks/Xamarin.Mac.framework/Versions/Current/lib/mono/4.5/mscorlib.dll
Comment 8 Gaurav Ganorkar 2017-05-11 08:50:45 UTC
we are now able to see the resolvedFromPath of the mscorlib.dll as mentioned in the Comment 5.

Verified on 7.1 Build 582
