Just a small warning: This works if you are only changing the managed
bits of a library what is the case for most of the other libraries,
and most of the code in corlib, also.

Unfortunately corlib is not the best example in that sense, because it
depends on many native parts (shared structures/ internal call APIs)
inside the runtime and sometimes this means that sometimes you'ĺl need
to do a full rebuild from the native ('mono' tree) side, that keeps
things in sync. You'll receive a nice, but frustating, error message
when trying to run any program with Mono, if you compile and install a
new corlib that doesn't match the expected internal version number the
runtime was compiled for, and vice-versa.
