So, it took me forever today to figure out how to get PostSharp working without installing it 'globally' with the msi installer.

In a nutshell, you have to include a directory for example /lib/ with all of the PostSharp baggage:
  • Default.psproj
  • PostSharp.targets
  • PostSharp-1.0.targets
  • PostSharp-1.0.version
  • PostSharp-AppDomain.config
  • PostSharp-Platform.config
  • PostSharp.Core.dll
  • PostSharp.Core.pdb*
  • PostSharp.Core.XmlSerializers.dll
  • PostSharp.exe
  • PostSharp.exe.config
  • PostSharp.pdb*
  • PostSharp.Laos.dll
  • PostSharp.Laos.pdb*
  • PostSharp.Laos.psplugin
  • PostSharp.Laos.Weaver.dll
  • PostSharp.Laos.Weaver.pdb*
  • PostSharp.MSBuild.dll
  • PostSharp.MSBuild.pdb*
  • PostSharp.Public.dll
  • PostSharp.Public.pdb*

* = Optional

Add a reference to the PostSharp.Laos and PostSharp.Public assemblies in your project.

Then you have to edit your .csproj file around the existing <Import Project="$(MSBuildToolsPath)\Microsoft.CSharp.targets" /> section to be: 
  <PropertyGroup>
    <DontImportPostSharp>True</DontImportPostSharp>
    <PostSharpDirectory>lib\</PostSharpDirectory>
  </PropertyGroup>
  <Import Project="$(MSBuildToolsPath)\Microsoft.CSharp.targets" />
  <Import Project="$(PostSharpDirectory)PostSharp.targets" />
