Although I mentioned this on IRC, I am not sure if you ever saw it.

Is it possible to instead of using a set of preconfigured numbers for
the SDK, that we could provide a string, so that:


Makes mcs look in $prefix/lib/mono/STRING

That way we do not hardcode the constant, and we can have different
profiles just by building that directory and invoking the compiler
with that option.
