+Summary: Bug in mcs '/r:' handling
+I think there's a bug in the way that mcs handles assembly references. It 
+looks like its ability to resolve assembly references depends on the order 
+that the references appear on the command line. By way of explanation, 
+please see the attached files.
+There are 3 assemblies created:
+        a/a.dll - references no other assemblies
+        b/b.dll - references a.dll
+        c.exe - references b.dll
+In the makefile there are two attempts to build c.exe:
+        mcs /r:a/a.dll /r:b/b.dll c.cs
+        mcs /r:b/b.dll /r:a/a.dll c.cs
+The first one succeeds. The second one fails - it shouldn't.
+** (/home/server/mono/install/bin/mcs.exe:6307): WARNING **: Could not 
+find assembly a error CS0006: Cannot find assembly `b/b.dll'
+I believe that mcs should include the assemblies referenced on the command 
+line in its list of places to look when resolving those assemblies.
