Hi there,

Back on July 5, John posted this issue to the list and no answer was
posted to the list.  I haven't found an answer anywhere else, so am
wondering if any answer was ever produced.  I have the same version and
same problem:

I created a simple console-based Hello World project and after its
completely generated I press F8 to make the target but receive the
following error message:

/bin/sh ./admin/missing --run automake-1.6 --foreign ./Makefile 
cd . && perl admin/am_edit Makefile.in 
cd . && /bin/sh ./config.status Makefile 
config.status: error: invalid argument: Makefile 
gmake[1]: *** [Makefile] Error 1 
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/devel/projects/cpp/DBFramework/Oracle' 
gmake: *** [all] Error 2 
*** failed *** 


I've tried several different wizard-generated projects, and the make
fails in similar fashion each time.  The problem seems to be due to
config.status getting generated with an argument handler for
"./Makefile" and not "Makefile".  Is there any easy way to deal with

Thanks in advance,
