There is currently no way to pass extra arguments for MonoMac's mmp linker. This is useful for options such as -linkskip, or any other hidden/advanced options that may be available in mmp.

Ideally, it should be similar to MonoTouch's UI, which is just an extra text box in the Mac OS X Packaging Settings.

Looks like I already added this a while ago and forgot I did...

it's called "Extra packaging args" in the Advanced tab
