Here is what I just did in a new directory to make sure everything is fresh.

git clone https://github.com/mono/mono.git
git clone https://github.com/mono/maccore.git
git clone https://github.com/mono/monomac.git
git clone https://github.com/mono/sysdrawing-coregraphics.git

cd monomac
cd src

Then open the sysdrawing-coregraphics solution file

In the project sysdrawing-coregraphics-Mac make sure that the references 
point to the MonoMac.dll that you just built because it does not run 
against what is delivered.

Right click the sysdrawing-coregraphics-Mac project and select Clean and 
then Build or Rebuild

Try that and let me know if it compiles.

Again no need to compile mono as we are just using the sources.
