That was a question I was going to ask yet. How does the build system
actually work? Do you have to generate a Makefile? Or how do you tell
kdevelop what exactly to build. Maybe through some API?

If I remember correctly, kdevelop doesn't have a dependency check,
other than through the Makefile. Maybe I can just use the makedep
stuff for that?
