A short example of how to use the Makefilelib. It tries to create a Makefile to compile itself.

This may not work, but thats not the goal of this program.

        ConditionalNDEF* have_cc = mgr.own(new ConditionalNDEF("CXX"));

        // A Conditional can hold MakefileItems in it's if- and else-blocks
        // Variables have a VariableRef(erence) and a VariableDef(inition).

        // Now we can add a command to the rule.

        // let it write our makefile into it.

        // Now run make and look what it does. Maybe it won't work, because the cpp file is somewhere else
        // Run make -n -f example.mk to do a dryrun.
        // To get a running executable, this has to be linked against libmakefilelib.so.
