[MonoDevelop] $(Configuration) not supported?

Hi Barry,

If you enable "Experimental xbuild support" in the MonoDevelop preferences,
it *should* build correctly (you'll need to restart MD, though). However,
things that reference arbitrary MSBuild variables won't show correctly in
the Solution tree.

Unfortunately enabling this feature will break ASP.NET, MonoMac, MonoTouch,
etc (Mono 4 Android will be ok) project types, but normal .NET projects
should work.

Hope that helps,
