'MPLAB 3.40 Probelms with own MAKE'

Hi All.

I previously used MP-LAB 3.30 with a UNIX-like MAKE facility and my own
makefile to assemble and link projects with multiple files. It worked very
nicely, and was quite fast. "Build Project" would call my batch file, I
could watch the batch file execute in a DOS window, and MPLAB would "pick
up" the generated HEX file smoothly.

Try as I might, I can't seem to get 3.40 to work with my setup.  I've
created my own .INI and .MTC files, but I can't get past the built-in
dependency checker when I want to build a project.

*** All I want is for "Build Project" to call my batch file, let me watch
its progress in a window, and have MPLAB pick up the resultant .HEX file
and dump it to my PICMASTER. ***

IOW, I want to bypass the MAKE / dependency checking, and have a DOS box
that actually works.

I also tried to use 3.40 with its own built-in MAKE, following the example
in TUTOR.PDF, but I get timeouts while assembling large files, and I'm
unable to fix them by tweaking the DOS box's idle and suspend-on-background
properties. Plus, I'd rather use my own MAKE and manage these things at the
DOS level.

Also, 3.40 is more than 3 times slower in assembling my files within MPLAB
than 3.30 was when spawning a DOS box for my MAKE batch file.

I'm running 3.30 and 3.40 on the same machine (though not concurrently).

Does anyone else work this way? Can anyone help?

Thanks,
