I've been working on using prebuild to create project files for AgateLib, and it seems like it would be a lot more convenient if you can include files so you can separate project descriptions for prebuild from the solution descriptions. This is real handy if you want to have multiple solutions and have some projects shared between them, say, some core library that is referenced by other projects in each solution. I'm not the only one who wants this, from the looks of the dnpb forums. Anyway, I created a patch for dnpb to allow support for including files. Now I'm posting this here because I know prebuild is used by OpenTK to setup the build system. So if this sort of thing would be useful for OpenTK, here is the link:

Thanks, I can think of a couple of projects where I could use this.

That said, I'm looking to remove Prebuild in favor of an msbuild/xbuild solution, once MonoDevelop 2 is out and xbuild matures. This way, we'll be able to support commandline compilation plus all major IDEs (Visual Studio, SharpDevelop, MonoDevelop) with a single system. Until then, Prebuild is the next best solution.
