Having a problem with Make in KDevelop

I was wondering if someone has run into this and can maybe point the way to go to fix the problem.

I started a project in KDevelop, worked on it all last week and did get it to compile and execute several times (the last time was on Saturday).

Before logging off on saturday, I played a bit with the distribution options and had KDE make a tar.gz file with it (and a ./configure script etc...) all automated.

When I opened it up last night and toyed with it a bit, I tried to compile and now I'm getting a HUGE mess in the message window...

A *LOT* of messages like:

trying implicit pattern rule with stem ***** and
rejecting *something* prerequisite *****

I wish I could be more accurate, but they've been whizzzing by at 100 miles an hour for the last 10 mins (and show no sign of stopping unless I XKill KDevelop).

As far as I know, nothing's changed in the project, the makefile is there, I didn't add new components...

What's going on?


Ok, I let it run for about 20 mins and now I can see the exact type of messages:

"looking for an implicit rule for 'admin/libtool.m4in'."
"trying pattern rule with stem 'libtool.m4in'."
"Trying implicit prerequisite for 'admin/libtool.m4in'."

ad-nauseum (there's a LOT)
