[Mono-dev] using internal calls in mono1.1.9 is allowed just in mscorlib.dll?

yes, I actually did mono_add_internal_call () to register internal call..

And then, i refered the dll in following way.

mcs -target:library -o MyApp.dll SPC.cs
mcs -o Test.cs -r:MyApp.dll

But, I got "..contains
> native code and mono can't run it." And then when added the internal calls
to mscorlib.dll, mono didn't give that error message. Is it the way mono
allow for internal call?

2) the following is error message i got.

I tried
make get-monolite-latest

But, got same error again.

mcs -d:NET_1_1 -d:ONLY_1_1 -d:BOOTSTRAP_WITH_OLDLIB -debug -target:exe -out:
mcs.exe cs-parser.cs @mcs.exe.sources
Internal() warning CS8018: Could not find the symbol writer assembly (

make sure to compile and install the mcs/class/Mono.CSharp.Debugger
