OS/Compiler notes: 

Hi there,

I made a new C++ project (Hello world program) using the create new project wizard. I then clicked the "Build project" button on the main toolbar. After being told that automake and friends had to be run (as expected), I selected yes to run them. This process fails due to a missing depcomp file. Selecting "Run automake and friends" from the Build menu yields the same results. The log in the messages window is as follows:

 cd /home/gareth/test && make -f Makefile.cvs
 WARNING: Using auxiliary files such as `acconfig.h', `config.h.bot'
 WARNING: and `config.h.top', to define templates for `config.h.in'

 WARNING: Using the third argument of `AC_DEFINE' and

 WARNING: documentation.
 autoheader: `config.h.in' is created
 src/Makefile.am: required file `./depcomp' not found
 make: *** [all] Error 1

Am I missing something, or is this a bug? I hope this helps you guys - you're doing a fantastic job with this new IDE :)
