Patch to improve error reporting

Description of Problem:

Currently you only get a weird stack trace when xbuild can not find one of the
files listed in a .resx file.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Try building the My Nes project (http://mynes.sf.net) using xbuild My
2. You are told that the resource file is invalid, when actually it was just a
file which could not be found.

Actual Results:
Weird stack trace which indicates that the .resx file is invalid.

Expected Results:
File not found "<filename>" or something similar.

How often does this happen? 
Every time, especially when trying to compile a visual studio generated file
since they use \ as a directory separator. I will add a bug with patch to fix
that next.
