Targeting .NET 3.5 does not work when Compact Framework is not installed

Details

    Description

      When trying to compile a 3.5 Library/Exe on a system where CF 3.5 is not installed, the following error occurs:

      error CS0006: Metadata file 'C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.5\Microsoft.C
      ompactFramework.Build.Tasks.dll' could not be found
      

      Here is the full build log:

      A quick look into DefaultCompiler.java, shows why:

      DefaultCompiler.java
             if ( compilerContext.getCompilerRequirement().getVendor().equals( Vendor.MICROSOFT ) &&
                 compilerContext.getCompilerRequirement().getFrameworkVersion().equals( "3.5" ) )
             {
                 String wcfRef = "/reference:" + System.getenv( "SystemRoot" ) +
                     "\\Microsoft.NET\\Framework\\v3.5\\";
                 //TODO: This is a hard-coded path: Don't have a registry value either.
                 commands.add( wcfRef + "Microsoft.Build.Tasks.v3.5.dll" );
                 commands.add( wcfRef + "Microsoft.CompactFramework.Build.Tasks.dll" );
                 commands.add( wcfRef + "Microsoft.Data.Entity.Build.Tasks.dll" );
                 commands.add( wcfRef + "Microsoft.VisualC.STLCLR.dll" );
             }
