[Mono-devel-list] GAC (design) issues

No. In MS you don't have to specify a path in 2 cases:

1. For assemblies located in the same directory as csc.exe (that is for
example \WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322)
2. For assemblies located in the current directory

GAC is not on the list. See for yourself by GAC-ing your own assembly (not
the system one, as they are also found by the first rule) and compiling
something referencing that assembly.
