 the equivalent csc.exe command line works fine.
 I believe this is due to a more fundamental problem in mcs: you can't 
 reference a corlib.dll that's different from the one used to run mcs.exe. 
 this in turn breaks self-hosting on linux.

+How does this break self-hosting on Linux?
+The way the makefiles are setup, they will set the MONO_PATH before
+running Mono, so the correct corlib will be picked up (there is no
+need to do -nostdlib -r corlib.dll).
+The other issue can be investigated, but I have not been able to
+figure out the exact problem that people are having when self-hosting
+with the makefile.s
