[Mono-dev] [PATCH] Generate Consts.vb from Consts.cs (new patch)

I think we already have perl dependency. I decided to use perl because this 
conversion is done solely using regular expressions and perl is good at it. 
On the other hand things in the common directory are built before any 
bootstrap compilation is done it may be better not to rely on mcs in this 

Anyway if others prefer to have a cs2vb.cs instead I'll port it to C# 
because it's really small work.

I might be wrong but I am wondering if it is consistent to use Perl for
this kind of things, inside the mono project. It would be more logical
to use Mono itself, and then not having another external dependency
(Mono depending on Perl??), right?
