I also just found out that there is also a clean target that has the 
same problem "'buildfile' is a required attribute." + I found that the 
corlib is the only one to contain a 'mcs_build' target.

1) is anyone currently using Nant to build the class libraries?
2) is it ok for me to work on the Nant .build files (to update them for 
clean and mcs-build targets)? or are they being 'depreciated'?
3) can mcs currently compile all the class libraries? (since I was 
hitting some compiler errors)
