The hard way indeed, that’s what I feared.
Why do you think it is a good idea to have those files versioned?
The reason I don’t want them is because, amongst others, the arguments
to ‘make’ are stored there, and I use different arguments on different
machines to cope with different locations of the Java JNI include files.
If you have a better solution to this, please let me know. I’d like
to put those in the Makefile automatically, but haven’t found a way to
do that yet.
Right now, this means that on all computers except mine, those files are
marked as changed.
Also, they *don’t* store more interesting stuff like formatter
preferences (unless you configure those project-specific, I suppose),
which I then have to copy over anyway.
How do you set up your projects? For C projects? For Java projects?
For mixed projects (i.e. JNI, both C and Java)? For TeX?
Thanks for the help, and appreciate your feedback.
