Description Mikayla Hutchinson 2012-08-22 13:28:09 UTC
The Microsoft.Portable.CSharp.targets file is broken - when building against MonoTouch, it does not use the correct compiler. See
Comment 1 Jeffrey Stedfast 2012-08-22 13:45:28 UTC
Fixed in git master and mono-2-10 branch
Comment 2 Mikayla Hutchinson 2012-09-14 10:49:03 UTC

Comment 3 Miguel de Icaza 2013-02-03 13:57:48 UTC
Jeff, the comment on the commit says the fix is wrong:

Could we make sure that this is fixed in Mono 2.10?

Duncan, can you get this fix in 2.10?
Comment 4 Jeffrey Stedfast 2013-02-06 15:15:13 UTC
The fix is correct for 2.10 (2.10 doesn't use the same compiler for all profiles).

The comment was saying that the fix was wrong for 3.0, but that's really more of a "it depends on which MonoTouch the user is using" and until we ship 3.0-based MonoTouch/Droids, using smcs is the right thing to do.
Comment 5 Jeffrey Stedfast 2013-02-06 15:19:22 UTC
n/m, we could still use the system's mono compiler, so we can yank the smcs stuff in master.
