You can try to use prj2make or prj2make-sharp-gtk (they have very
similar capabilities but one has a GUI front end). Prj2make only work
with C# projects and solution files for C# projects. It is also
intended for Visual Studio .NET 2003.
There is also a Visual Studio add-in (vsprj2make). This works nice
within the Visual Studio IDE.
Prj2make is not perfect but it may prove useful and get you started.
