       create_makefile - Creates and Makefile from a


       create_makefile [relativepath/Makefile] [relativepath]


       create_makefile  creates the and Makefile in a subdirectory
       containing a This script saves time compared to re-running
       configure completely

       Note that you must supply the path to the desired Makefile
       (though the final /Makefile may be omitted).

       This script may be run from the toplevel directory (the one  containing
       configure or from one of it’s subdirectories.

       If  the source directory is different from the build directory (see the
       environment variables below), it will be assumed that  the
       and  belong  beneath  the  source  directory  and that the
       Makefile belongs beneath the build directory.

       This utility is part of the KDE Software Development Kit.


       One of the following variables (but not both)  should  be  set  if  the
       source  directory  is  different from the build directory. If the build
       directory is simply a subdirectory of the source directory, the simpler
       variable OBJ_SUBDIR should be used.

              Indicates  that the build directory is in the given subdirectory
              of the source directory. For instance, if the  source  directory
              is kdesdk and the build directory is kdesdk/obj-i386-linux, then
              OBJ_SUBDIR should be set to obj-i386-linux.

              A sed expression that is used to transform the source  directory
              into  the build directory. For instance, if the source directory
              is ~/src/kdesdk and the  build  directory  is  ~/src/kdesdk-obj,
              then OBJ_REPLACEMENT should be set to s#kdesdk#kdesdk-obj#.
