[Mono-dev] make install doesn't copy monodroid profile assemblies to the prefix directory

There are no install target as those assemblies are not consumed in a
standard way, it's very useful to have them on either the GAC or a profile

What we do at Xamarin is to have them consumed as part of our product
build, mostly due to historical reasons.

If you're using Xamarin.Android beta and have a paid license[1], you can
copy them over. Yes, it's brittle, I'm sorry for that.

But it's something that should be fixed on the build system.


[1]Starter edition doesn't allow random assemblies be used for the BCL.
