When MD has invalid Apple SDK set MD uses wrong default path to ibtool

It uses "usr/bin/ibtool" instead of "/usr/bin/ibtool"

This is because the Xcode location is set to an incorrect value, or Xcode is not installed, so the developer root is blank.

The MonoMac and iPhone addins need to check whether the Xcode location is valid, and emit an error if it's not.
