[IronPython] Omit SILVERLIGHT_3 from IronPython Build

Sorry for the confusion; the IronPython CODEPLEX sources are NOT
buildable with Silverlight 2; the csproj files contain direct
references to silverlight 3 assemblies. So you need to build with
Silverlight 3 installed. However, if you want to ensure the assemblies
still work on Silverlight 2, you'll have to remove the SILVERLIGHT_3
flag; then you install SL2 and test everything out.

You are NOT required to have the silverlight tools installed to build
the ironpython binaries; just the silverlight 3 runtime.

How come you have a SL2 requirement though? You can't download SL2
from the web anymore, and everyones SL2 installs should be prompting
them to update to SL3. SL3 should be entirely backward comaptible, so
I'd like to know the reason your bound to SL2.
