Well, the subject line pretty well sums it up, but here are some further details:  I have taken over the maintenance someone else's C# application.  They used the Visual Studio C# IDE, but I use the SharpDevelop IDE.  I need to recompile the entire codebase, but the only compilation instructions I have are contained in a csproj file created by Visual Studio.  I want to convert the build instructions contained in the csproj file into a command line build using the csc.exe compiler that ships with C#.

The winning answer will tell me which of the tags in the csproj file pertain to csc.exe switches, and how to translate them into a command using csc.exe.

After extensive searching of the experts-exchange archive of answers, I'm going to try something suggested to another user with a similar problem:  using the NAnt tool to create a build process, and using the command line SlingShot to convert my .csproj to an NAnt makefile (http://nantcontrib.sourceforge.net/builds/).  Any comments or suggestions or help will still be greatly appreciated, and may even earn the points.
