The only integration I'm aware of at all is with KDevelop.
I've still never tried that :-(

Yeah, that sounds pretty reasonable, if difficult.

It probably makes sense to concentrate on a simple-but-usable subset
of automake, at least at first.  Otherwise, the problem you'll
encounter is that a is pretty complicated to interpret.
For instance, there are runtime conditionals and configure

Another thing to think about is whether to support having a in each directory.  It might be simpler just to have a
single master at the top level.

There are a lot of other things a useful auto*/eclipse integration
could do.  We could talk here or on the CDT list, as you (and others)
