Description degt 2001-11-16 08:24:56 UTC
(*** This bug was imported into bugs.kde.org ***)

Package:           kdevelop
Version:           1.4.1 (using KDE 2.2.0 )
Severity:          normal
Installed from:    Unspecified Linux
Compiler:          gcc 2.96
OS:                Linux
OS/Compiler notes: Not Specified

I have a project with a single C file and a couple of header files. I also have a makefile named "makefile"
(not Makefile and not MAKEFILE!). 

When attempting to build the project from KDE it blindly complains that there is no "Makefile" in the directory and it cannot proceed. Well there is a makefile (all lowercase) which is a _valid_ makefile name for gmake (it searches Makefile makefile). 

I AM able to build this from the command line by 
simply issuing "make" without the name of the makefile. So this is obviously a KDEVELOP error in that it checks only for Makefile before trying to execute gmake (unlike what bug #2623 makes believe with the "works here"). If it was a gmake problem then gmake would refuse to build and that is not the case.
