[Mono-list] System.IO.Compression

Somehow I'm having trouble getting GZipStream to work in mono.
It's as if System.IO.Compression doesn't exist in mono at all? 

I do:

$ cat GZTest.cs 
using System.IO.Compression;

class GZTest {

$ mcs /target:library GZTest.cs
GZTest.cs(1,7): error CS0234: The type or namespace name
`Compression' does not exist in the namespace `System.IO'. Are
you missing an assembly reference?
GZTest.cs(1,1): error CS0246: The type or namespace name
`IO.Compression' could not be found. Are you missing a using
directive or an assembly reference?
Compilation failed: 2 error(s), 0 warnings

$ mcs --version
Mono C# compiler version

As far as I can tell google, other people are able to use
System.IO.Compression in mono fine. Any ideas what I'm doing
