We are working to get the PCL reference assemblies relicensed under MIT to allow redistribution and avoid these gymnastics.

    I was able to build monodevelop from master by including the correct
    PCLs (links below, thanks Romain!) and applying the small git diff
    attached. I created a default console project in MD and ran it, but
    that's as far as I took my exploration (so far).
    Thanks very much for everyones help. Mikayla, thanks so much for your support.
    So, about that "patch".  I basically just hacked something out of a
    file in a language i know nothing about. It seemed trivial enough
    (someones not going to get a popup)? I don't use fsharp so....
    On another note, I was poking around on the .net core sites. I wonder
    what's going to happen with monodevelop and .net core? It seems they
    (er, you?) have side stepped mono entirely.
    Anyway, I'm going to enjoy my small irrelevant victory. Cheers!
    Romains zip. I haven't tested it yet, but it unzips fine.
    tar I created using 7zip.

    Flat size      : 45.5MiB
    Description    :
    F# is an open-source, strongly typed, multi-paradigm programming
    language encompassing functional, imperative and object-oriented
    programming techniques.  F# is most often used as a cross-platform CLI
    language, but can also be used to generate JavaScript and GPU code.
    F# is developed by The F# Software Foundation and Microsoft.  An open
    source, cross-platform edition of F# is available from the F# Software
    Foundation.  F# is also a fully supported language in Visual Studio.
    Other tools supporting F# development include Mono, MonoDevelop,
    SharpDevelop and the WebSharper tools for JavaScript and HTML5 web
    F# originated as a variant of ML and has been influenced by OCaml, C#,
    Python, Haskell, Scala and Erlang.

    Description    :
    Mono is an open source implementation of .NET Development Framework. Its
    objective is to enable UNIX developers to build and deploy cross-platform
    .NET Applications. The project implements various technologies developed by
    Microsoft that have now been submitted to the ECMA for standardization.
    Mono provides the necessary software to develop and run .NET client and
    server applications on BSD, Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, Windows, and Unix.
