This is a no-go.  The MONO_PATH is essential for the build.

And so, it appears to be picking up the 2.0 mscorlib.dll from the install tree.
We can't have that.  We need to pick up mscorlib.dll from the build tree, and
MONO_PATH is how we do it.

Since net_2_1_bootstrap/smcs.exe is emitted by gmcs, which in turn uses SRE, we
can't control the version numbers of its assemblyrefs.  We use MONO_PATH to
force the runtime to pick up the 2.1 versioned corlib from the bootstrap tree.

(That is why we have a 2 stage bootstrap for the 2.0 profile, and the first 2
of the 3 stages in the 2.1 bootstrap.)
