I have developed small to medium to large size projects in C/C++ and here are 
my observations
- letting an IDE maintain your makefiles is almost always a mistake. Creating 
makefiles isn' rocket science. Furthermore actual thing one has to write, 
e.g. Makefile.am/Jamfile are so simple, it doesn't take 5-10 lines per 
modules. IDE generated makefiles are often problematic to migrate when IDE is 
upgraded..
- A good editor is essential. The project management part of it is almost a 
fluff.

I use konsole/kate and my primary development environment but I don't develop 
GUI app yet. Even with Qt GUI apps, I have worked in a similar mode in past 
without losing any productivity,  and still keeping things simple.
