There isn't a real need to compile Kendo.Mvc.dll in order to use it with ASP.NET 5.2.2 (and 5.2.3).
All you have to do is use a binding redirect in your web.config (which NuGet does automatically if you update the ASP.NET MVC reference with it):
<assemblyIdentity name="System.Web.Mvc" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" />
<bindingRedirect oldVersion="0.0.0.0-220.127.116.11" newVersion="18.104.22.168" />
Please find attached a runnable sample which utilizes this approach.
