I agree with this point.
I use Xcode to work on MySQL and a storage engine.
Xcode is great for editing and debugging the code, but you don't need
to build any of this stuff using Xcode.
make in a terminal works fine for that.
What is useful is to compile using Xcode, just to get a quick syntax
It is possible to get most of the MySQL code compiling under Xcode for
this purpose. You can also then use the "goto definition/declaration"
functionality which is really useful.
And of course, including all the source files in a project is good for
doing text searches on the code.
