[Mono-list] type-reflector makefile

To correct one of your arguments... The only tool I'm aware of that
*requires* Gtk# is SqlSharp. All of the other tools are console-based
programs, or make the GUI optional (type-reflector does this).
Additionally, while they're not parts of the compiler or the class
library, they help with the creation of the class library.
EnumCheck.exe, GenerateDelegate.exe, and monostyle.exe could be directly
used by most developers of the class library (to check enumeration
constants, create a delegate declaration based on .NET, and ensure that
the coding standard is followed).
Type Reflector isn't as helpful as the above mentioned programs, so I
can see your point for this.
A monotools module is an interesting idea, none-the-less. I'm sure
there are a number of programs that people would like to keep in mono
CVS that would be of general interest by the community, which don't
logically belong in mcs/tools. I would certainly second this
