F# Project Reference issue on netcore 2.0

See original GitHub issue

The following F# project works fine when TargetFramework is netstandard1.6 / netcoreapp1.0 but fails with netstandard2.0 / netcoreapp2.0 (but same project works on 2.0 if --language is C#).

Steps to reproduce


<Project Sdk="Microsoft.NET.Sdk">
    <Compile Remove="**/*.fs" />
    <Compile Include="Library.fs" />


<Project Sdk="Microsoft.NET.Sdk">
    <ProjectReference Include="../lib/lib.fsproj" />
    <Compile Remove="**/*.fs" />
    <Compile Include="Program.fs" />


namespace Lib
module Say =
    let hello name = printfn "Hello World from %s!" name


let main argv =
    Lib.Say.hello "F#"

Expected behavior

Hello World from F#!

Actual behavior

Unhandled Exception: System.MissingMethodException: Method not found: 'Void Lib.Say.hello(System.String)'.
   at Program.main(String[] argv)
