I haven't tried it, but it might be possible. I think you still have
to configure the eclipse project with the right source and include
directories, just disable the auto-build feature. Please note that you
won't get any compilation errors/warings inside erlide in this case
(will be fixed in a future version). You would also miss the
auto-update feature if editing your sources while debugging, you have
to load the modules by hand.

If your make build just compiles the erlang files and the project
doesn't have any external dependencies, you can enable auto-build and
use erlide with all features. Even the external dependencies problem
can be handled, if needed.

Please let me know how it goes, it's useful to know. And of course if
it doesn't work, I can try to find a workaround.

best regards,
