You seem to have enabled "experimental xbuild support" in MonoDevelop
options. This does not work for all combinations of project types and
operating systems. In particular, the Moonlight SDK included in MD on
Mac does not work with xbuild, and only works with Mono 2.6.

The Moonlight addin is not supported on Windows on Windows, though it
*might* work if you enable xbuild and have the MS Silverlight SDK
installed, because the build would use the MS build tasks.
