What are these .cdtconfigure.Build files for? They seem to be binary
files, aren't they?

cheers

This file is a save of the configure arguments from the C/C++ Tool
settings page plus the project name. It is used by Autotools to detect if
the configure options have changed since the last invocation of configure
in which case configure is run at build time. It also checks to see if
the project has been renamed and will rerun configure at build time if
that is the case.

A DataOutputStream class was used to create and read the file.

In the Autotools rewrite, the configure options are being stored in an xml
file in the .metadata plugins section for the
org.eclipse.linuxtools.cdt.autotools plugin as project_name.configure.
This means the files won't be part of the project nor checked in/out by
the Team plugins. They will be fairly easy to manipulate manually if one
wishes to do so.
