 Shouldn't we just close this bug as either INVALID or WONTFIX since we
 never support compiling classlibs with csc (as it will absolutely fail
 at least at System.Web.dll where we use iterators in 1.x profile) ?

+I have written this previously:
+"I think Mono should either default to mcs on Win32 as well or 
+should support csc.exe and MS runtime for building because I really 
+was never able to compile Mono using MS csc.exe and MS runtime while 
+I was able to compile it using mcs and Mono runtime."
+So that time csc.exe seemed to be supported as it was used but in 
+fact it wasn't supported that was a bug.
+My problem was that csc.exe was the default C# compiler on Windows 
+but that was unable to compile mcs tree so make always had to be 
+executed like this:
+"make EXTERNAL_MCS=/usr/local/bin/mcs 
+Since SVN r48695 mcs is used as default C# compiler on Windows as 
+well so the above described problem is now fixed.
+Please don't close this as INVALID as this problem caused build 
+failure on Windows using default options.
+If we don't want to support csc.exe this should be closed as WONTFIX.
