Bug repro

When building a MonoMac bundle, MonoDevelop fails to include assemblies which aren't directly referenced by the MonoMac project but which are referenced by projects it depends upon. See the attached sample for a repro. In the sample there are two libraries - FirstLibrary and SecondLibary. The former depends on the latter and the MonoMac application depends on the former only. When built, the generated app bundle doesn't include SecondLibrary.dll

I guess to fix this we would need to do a recursive assembly walk with cecil even when building bundles that use the system Mono.

I'm assuming that the new MSBuild targets magically fix this but I don't know for sure.

I believe this is fixed when you have a recent addin installed (2 years later). 

I did a clean and rebuild and i'm seeing first and second in my bundle.

Please reopen if you can give me a repro case (and note your installed software versions please).
