I can't speak for the other assemblies, but there *are* differences
between the 1.0 and 2.0 versions of Mono.Posix.dll.  Grep for NET_2_0 in
the sources for a full detailing, but some examples include:

        // Mono.Unix.Native/Stdlib.cs:
        public sealed class FilePosition : MarshalByRefObject,
        #if NET_2_0
          , IEquatable<FilePosition>

Most of the changes are to add IEquatable<T> to a class/structures
inheritance list, though how Stdlib.cs handles signals is also different
between the two versions.
