The hardcoded name bother me too, but then I couldn't think of any realistic scenario where you'd build an mscorlib with a different name. Do you have any examples?

Also, how does gmcs know that it is compiling mscorlib?

BTW, the solution I would prefer would be to add DefineMscorlib() (taking the same parameters as DefineDynamicAssembly).
