So we still have to problems:
1.) Why do we need a make clean call in the project's root directory
although all sources (as well as any autoconf/automake subprojects) are
located in the subdirectory of the same name as the project (which means
that temporary stuff is also there in that subdir)?

2.) Why does it happen that Ralf runs make clean in KDevelop although he
run make clean in the source subdirectory of his example project?

Sandy, maybe for instance you could give us a hint which directory
getSubDir() is?
