Signing with a PKCS #12 file (the PFX extension) is a new option
available in fx 2.0. 

Mono SN doesn't currently support this option (it's on my long todo list
of 2.0 stuff) but it shouldn't be too difficult to add. However I never
checked if this option was also implemented into the CSC compiler

Anyway if you fill a bug for this you'll be the first to know when it
get fixed ;-)
