I'm slightly confused, because it sounds like you want git, a version
control system, to somehow make up for xcode not creating an MSBuild
file for use in Visual Studio :)

If I've understood your question I think you are much more likely to get
an answer on a VS-related mailing list.

Personlly I'd solve this particular problem with CMake

An approximate answer to the right problem is worth a good deal more
than an exact answer to an approximate problem.
