Steps to reproduce:

(1) Using environment w/ VisualStudio Mac (see below for details)

(4) In the middle pane, select "Blank Forms App".
(5) Select [Next] button.  The second "New Project" dialog should appear.
(6) Enter "DroidBuildFail" for "App Name:" and "com.fail" for "Organization Identifier:".
(7) Assure that "Android" "Target Platform" has been selected.
(8) Select "Use Portable Class Library" for "Shared Code:" setting.
(9) Select [Next].  Third "New Project" dialog should appear.
(10) Select [Create].  VisualStudio will create a new project. Wait for packages to be added successfully.
(11) In the Solution Pad, right click on the "DroidBuildFail.Droid" project and select "Set as Startup Project".
(12) In the Solution Pad, expand the "DroidBuildFail.Droid" project and double click on the "Packages" folder.  The "Add Packages" dialog should appear.
(13) Search for and select the "Xamarin.Facebook.Android" package.
(14) Click [Add Package] and wait for the package to be successfully added.
(15) In the Solution Pad, right click on the ".Droid" project and select "Rebuild DroidBuildFail.Droid". 
(16) In the Solution Pad, right click on the  "DroidBuildFail" solution and select "Display Options / Show All Files".
(17) In the Solution Pad, navigate to "DroidBuildFail.Droid/obj/Debug/android" and select the "AndroidManifest.xml" file there.

Comment 1 Ben Askren 2017-05-27 14:31:46 UTC
IMPORTANT: I should note that is bug prevents more than one app using Xamarin.Facebook.Android from being installed on the same device.
Comment 2 Ben Askren 2017-05-27 15:27:15 UTC
Upon inspecting the contents of Xamarin.Facebook.Android.dll, there are three AndroidManifest.xml files within the __AndroidLibraryProjects__.zip.  One in the root, on in the bin folder, and on is the aapt folder.  

Of those three AndroidManifest.xml files, two of them (the one in the root and the one in the aapt folder) have 

            android:exported="false" />

tags while the one in the bin folder is unadultered:

            android:exported="false" />

So it is possible that the build process is incorrect at both the time this package was made as well as when I build my project with it.
Comment 3 Ben Askren 2017-05-27 15:29:52 UTC
I should note that the above was from Xamarin.Facebook.Android.4.22.0.
