Description Jeff Johnston 2007-03-19 18:06:54 UTC
The Autotools plug-in after successfully configuring and building the first time
will on subsequent attempts run the config.status which rebuilds the Makefile. 
This is done even if the Makefile already exists.  When the build console
preferences are set to clear, this ends up clearing the original configuration.
 Suggestion is to only run config.status if the Makefile is missing and the
config.status exists.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnston 2007-03-19 19:34:36 UTC
Fixed in next release.  Code has been changed to only run config.status if the
top-level Makefile can't be found.
