According to the release notes for the 4.0.3 .NET Framework Update, the Portable Class Libraries should now support System.Xml.Linq and System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations.
Feature 4: XLinq and DataAnnotations added to .NET Framework 4 Portable Class LibrariesSupport for System.Xml.Linq.dll and System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations.dll has been added to the Portable Class Library project when targeting .NET Framework 4.0.3. For more information about how to install Portable Class Library support, visit the Portable Class Library article on MSDN.
However I still can't add a reference to those DLLs after I installed the 4.0.3 update. What do I need to do to be able to do this?

Welcome to the MSDN Forum.
Based on your description, I reproduced this scenario. One possibility is that the tool is out of date. And I have add a comments on that page to ask update.
