you are right, its svn head.
I build CB from scratch, but find that the export Makefile menu item is greyed.

Its no longer supported because CB, build system has changed so much that the developers didn't have enough time to support it.  I don't think it will be supported until 1.5, but you should check out the Roadmap on the wiki.

C::B still can (it's not impossible) but the code is currently inactive. It is better to wait until the changes for the project an build system are complete before adjusting the Makefile generator again.
If you want to, you can try to enable in in your copy of C::B or even help with the adjustments in the future. I personally have a copy of RC2 on my computer that allows me to create a "raw" Makefile for new projects and then usually the only thing I have to do is adding file(s) to it.
With regards, Morten.

Tried that a few days ago...disaster came upon me :shock:  :P
Well, actually the Makefile was simply scr***d.

This makes perfect sense. The makefile exporting has been disabled for quite some time now and it's left way behind in terms of compatibility...

I did not mean that it's as easy as to uncomment it. What I meant is that the possibility is still there -> the framework has all features required for a Makefile generator. Allthough I would recommend to implement this as a plugin in the future...
With regards, Morten.
