You need to reference the System.Xml.dll asssembly.

If building from the command line, use the -r:System.Xml.dll argument:

	gmcs foo.cs -r:System.Xml.dll

If using MonoDevelop, in the Solution Pane right-click References, then
click Edit References.  In the Packages tab, select the System.Xml
assembly, then click OK.
