    \section1 Opening and Using Autotools Projects

    To work with your Autotools project in \QC:

        \list 1

            \o Select \gui{File > Open File or Project}.
            \o Select the Makefile.am from your project. This is the only way a
               user can use the autotools plugin. Thus, a Makefile.am must
               always exist before hand.
            \o Select the build directory. Only in-source building is working
               right now.
            \o Select \gui Finish.
               \QC displays the project tree structure. The root node displays
               the project name. All project files are listed below it and you
               can open them from the list.
            \o Select \gui Run to build and run the application. This will
               execute autogen.sh or autoreconf, configure and make. The first
               time, when running the application, a dialog will ask you to
               choose the executable's location, then, \QC will remember it for
               the following times. Ideally, this will be changed in the future,
               to be done in a more automated way.
            \o To check and edit autotools build steps, select
               \gui{Projects > Build Settings}. You can see the typical
               autotools build steps: autogen.sh/autoreconf, configure and make.
               You may configure some parameters such as adding new configure
               parameters or changing the build directory (though, as mentiond
               before, only in-source building is working at the moment).
