           Summary: Generic C++ project (Custom Makefiles) does not allow
                    build targets to be configured
           Product: kdevelop
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: RedHat RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdevelop-devel at barney.cs.uni-potsdam.de
        ReportedBy: pardsbane at offthehill.org

Version:           3.0.0 (using KDE KDE 3.0.3)
Installed from:    RedHat RPMs
OS:          Linux


I can't find any way to specific 'Build Configurations' or 'Build Targets' for Custom Applications. I noticed under a project managed by KDevelop you can specify 'Build Configurations' under the Project menu, and under The Build Menu for our project imported with "Custom Makefiles" there is a blank "Build Targets" sub-menu. (This is probably because our targets (clean, etc) are all listed in a seperate file imported into the Makefile.

Anyway, what I would like to be able to do is specify various parameters to the make command, and vary they depending on "Build Configurations". For example, to build our project in debug mode, we run this command:

make BUILD_TYPE=debug

and to build in release, we do:

make BUILD_TYPE=release

I just want a way to create 'configurations' for custom makefile projects, and then to specify either the entire command on a per configuration basis, or just the parameters to the program (make or ant).
