How new of a mcs do you need to compile?

Many people (buildbot and the rpm build machines being one example)
always compile mono by using an rpm install of mono-core for 1.1.n-1.
For example, right now, the buildbot/rpm build machines have mono installed. After we release 1.1.9, we will rug up to that

This means that mono from svn must be buildable with a mono-core install
from the latest released version.

Our build setup would get alot more tricky if we need to depend on
getting monolites in the build system, so I don't think we would want to
break this policy.

Btw, there are a few other hacks like this that could potentially be
removed under the BOOTSTRAP_WITH_OLDLIB name.
