[cdt-dev] Managing linked resources in a GNU make environment

Currently, the CDT managed make does not compile resources located outside
the workspace.  That is, any linked folders in the project are ignored by
the managed make.  Through my own plug-in work, I can understand how this
is a complicated issue.  With linked-resources, you cannot predict where
they will be located, nor can you guarantee a common relative path for all
your resources.  This problem is compiled by GNU (MinGW) make's apparent
difficulty with Windows-style drive letters in build rules.

How is the CDT development team positioned to deal with linked resources in
the future of managed make?
Is there a workaround to the MinGW make's problem with drive letters (the
':' has always given me problems)?
