In 3.12 and 4.0, when building a VB project, it appears xbuild is trying to run /usr/lib/mono/4.5/vbnc when it should be running /usr/lib/mono/4.5/vbnc.exe. The build task fails with an error, but no errors are reported.

A symlink from /usr/lib/mono/4.5/vbnc -> /usr/lib/mono/4.5/vbnc.exe is enough to hide the underlying problem.

Thanks for your report, it pointed me into the right direction after having spent half an hour scratching my head why it doesn't report any errors :)

https://github.com/mono/mono/pull/1884 should fix it.
