[Mono-dev] Some MSBuild porting progress

Hello Lluis,

I think once we are happy with msbuild, that we should build msbuild as
part of the standard Mono build process and ship the resulting libraries
and script.

My only concern is whether the public API surface that msbuild has is able
to replace the assemblies that we currently install on the GAC.   If it
does, then we can get rid of our implementation, if not, we might have to
keep both around until we get everyone out of the xbuild implementation.
