And as no one can wait for this, I would recommend to study the qmake 
documentation, skip the autoconf/make mess and to produce your own make 
files. Kdevelop will easily integrate such a project as long:

* there is no sourcefile name twice within the subdirectory structure e.g. if 
you have a client server project you can not have the file socket.cpp within 
the client and the server project. KDevelop will not resolve this properly.

* same does apply to any function/var/class name

As a major advantage of this method you can structure your project like you 
want e.g. you can make your own directory structure and you keep temporaries, 
binaries and source separated from each other. 

A major disadvantage of qmake is it's lack to test for any xyz lib you need 
and to inform the user by any other message than a compiler error.

But anyway: Looks nice and does what you want. Plus it uses KDevelop. Hey 
this is like Christmas!
