I just read an email from Miguel (Mono head developer) that in the next
mono release (I don't know when this will be) the .NET profile 2.0 and 4.0
will be removed. So the reference assemblies of .NET 2.0 and 4.0 will be no
longer in the package. As it seems the new mono release will have the
version 4.0, so they are doing a major version bump.

If you need them you have to stay with mono 3.10.0 or someone should
maintain an AUR package which provides these assemblies.

If someone wants to read the discussion on the mono mailinglist you can
find it on the mail archive webpage:

The packages which are provided in our repositories will be working with
the new mono release, I will take care of this and move the new mono
release to our repository only if all packages are working with it. If this
doesn't work, maybe I will provide an old mono3 package and a new mono
package for version >= 4. If this is possible, have to check this first.

For all the AUR packages you are on your own to check them.
