Sadly it's not a minimum, or even a guideline - it requires the exact
expected version from its own altered 2.6 branch (based on 2.6.1, I
think). The class library build works by doing a full build of the
regular 2.6 class tree, then binary-patching the output to create
Silverlight versions of libraries from the 2.0 versions.

You'll need to bundle the appropriate 2.6 release, and mangle the build
process to handle it.
