In order to compile with either mcs or gmcs you need to reference an  
assembly file, not just the name of an assembly in the GAC. There are  
symlinks in some lib folder for convenience and most likely for NUnit  
there's a symlink (in this case nunit.framework in lib/1.0/) pointing  
to the old NUnit that was part of Mono framework. Try referencing a  
local copy or adding/modifying the symlinks and it should work.
