well, for me, the only thing that is broken is mono from svn
either because its mscorlib.dll lacks that method or because its monodoc.dll
requires a method that actually doesn't exist.

I think that method does exist in mscorlib.dll as I tried
Console.WriteLine( typeof(string) == typeof(string) );
it compiled and ran fine
of course I compiled mono with the flag "--with-profile4=yes"

btw, there is something that I don't know how to do:
in monodevelop, I add mscorlib.dll as a reference (just to browse it) then I
browse to System.Type, I can't see methods like op_Equality, how can I see
I guess op_Equality means overloading the == operator
