simple hello world program

Passing in --deps to mkbundle no longer links all the dependencies.  It is working properly in 4.8.1 but not in

I have attached a hello world program.
Build with mcs to create test.exe
Run 'AS="as -arch i386" mkbundle --deps --i18n none test.exe -c -o temp.c'

Look at temp.c.  It no longer links mscorlib.dll.

Right now I am working around this by listing each dependency individually.  I see this as a major issue going forward.  Accidentally leaving out an assembly here can hide as a bug that doesn't show up until execution hits that assembly.

Thanks in advance,
