They have been changing Mono.Posix. Specifically they have changed an 
enum. If you look at combine.cs near line 20 you will note some changes 
that don't compile. You probably need to change the reference to 
'Mono.Posix.FilePermissions' to 'Mono.Posix.FileMode'. You will find 
Combine.cs at 
...../Core/src/Main/Base/Internal/Project/Combine/Combine.cs. It looks 
like Tod is trying to change the code so that the correct option is 
selected for you but it is not working at the moment. You will see the 
code near line 20.
