.NET Standard 2.0: dotnet build fails #1307

Hi all,

I have a problem to use GitVersionTask (Version="4.0.0-beta0012") in a new simple and clean .netstandard2.0 library. The project has only a User class with some properties and a nuget reference to GitversionTask in version 4.0.0-beta0012.

If i run the rebuild command from Visual Studio 2017, it works fine. But when I try to run "dotnet build" in the console, it throws the following error:

C:\Users\rme\.nuget\packages\gitversiontask\4.0.0-beta0012\build\GitVersionTask.targets(49,5): error MSB4062: The "GitVersionTask.WriteVersionInfoToBuildLog" task could not be loaded from the assembly C:\Users\rme\.nuget\packages\gitversiontask\4.0.0-beta0012\build\GitVersionTask.dll. Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Build.Utilities.v4.0, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a, processorArchitecture=MSIL'. The system cannot find the file specified. Confirm that the <UsingTask> declaration is correct, that the assembly and all its dependencies are available, and that the task contains a public class that implements Microsoft.Build.Framework.ITask. [C:\Learning\GitHub\GitVersionTaskBuildIssue\GitVersionTaskBuildIssue\GitVersionTaskBuildIssue.csproj]

You can find the simple project on GitHub. Has anyone any idea or solution for the problem?
