Thanks Alex. 
Yes it does support generating the project in the build dir. It also works 
while generating in a subdir of the source dir. Eclipse version control plugin 
also works (I am using git). 

Best Regards,

well, Brad is the maintainer.
I think in general a "real" Eclipse CDT project generator would be preferred 
over the existing one which generates a makefile-based project for Eclipse.

I could try to support you a bit.

Does it support generating the project in the build dir, i.e. outside the 
source dir (or in a subdir of the source dir), and does then the Eclipse 
version control plugin (svn/git) work ?
