Issue was reported by a customer who was using the nuget package Portable.Data.Sqlite. However I was able to recreate this issue using the samples provided on github in the Portable.Data.Sqlite repository. The issue is that though the iOS sample and the referenced Portable.Data.Sqlite library compile and run fine in Visual Studio, the same fails in Xamarin Studio. I checked with both Mono 126.96.36.199 and Mono 188.8.131.52.
## Steps to reproduce
1. Download the Portable.Data.Sqlite repo from: https://github.com/ellisnet/Portable.Data.Sqlite and unzip
2. Open the Portable.Data.Sqlite solution from the root of the unzipped folder.
3. Build Portable.Data project.
4. Portable.Data.Sqlite projects.
Expected result: Portable.Data.Sqlite project will compile successfully as it does in Visual Studio.
Actual result: Project compile fails with the errors below:

Internal compiler error is fixed in master.
The build now fails with
../Portable.Data.Sqlite/SQLiteConvert.cs(470,7): error CS1684: Reference to type `System.IConvertible' claims it is defined assembly `mscorlib, Version=184.108.40.206, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089', but it could not be found
/Users/marek/git/bugs-repros/Portable.Data.Sqlite/Portable.Data/bin/Debug//Portable.Data.dll (Location of the symbol related to previous error)
which is probably little pedantic but correct as you are using DBNull which implement IConvertible but this PCL combination does not support IConvetible.
csc reports this as a warning but roslyn turned this into an error.
What is odd is that it builds in Visual Studio with the DBNull inheriting from IConvertible, which I do see is not available in the Windows Store Apps target platform. So I looked again and for some reason when this solution is opened in Visual Studio, the PCL is not targeting Windows Store Apps, but when opened in Xamarin Studio it does. So that explains the difference.
However I am unable to unselect Windows Store Apps in Xamarin Studio for this PCL project (likely a Xamarin Studio issue?). If I uncheck it, it is then implicitly selected and there is no change.
bug filed for issue noted in comment 4: https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=26960
I didn't test this in VS but you could check from both build logs which PCL profile is used during build and it should be same in XS and VS otherwise it's XS (possibly xbuild) bug.
