Bug Description

Monodevelop has the ability to update makefiles- we should use this to make our lives much easier.

For the record, I tried this initially and the resulting autofoo was
unusable. Maybe things have improved since then, though.

'WONTFIX', if it turns out that the integration is useless

MD has two similar sounding features:

1. Makefile generation - generates makefiles from the project files. These can be autofoo based or simple makefiles

2. Makefile integration - This allows you to associate things like 'list of source files', 'list of references' etc with specific makefile variables (in Makefile you specify). When this is enabled, when loading a project file, md will use those makefile variables to get the list of file/references instead of using the list in the project file. When saving the project, it will *update* the specified makefile variables with the updated lists. No makefiles/autofoo is generated for this.

David probably tried the first one, and the bug seems to be talking about the second one.
