;-) well, yes, but we´re using autoconf ;-)
I could however add a check for a Makefile in the base dir and if there
is none, look for one in getProjectDir()+getSubDir(), the other solution
however was buggy. I worked on kdevelop within kdevelop, started it and
loaded an example program. Then I did make clean in that example program
and what actually happened was a make clean in my kdevelop tree so I had
to recompile everything...
