Thanks, Eike
I was able to build it from the git master branch;
QT Creator is looking great.

btw, is there a "stable" branch?
and why not enabling the plugin by default?

also, I think these README instructions need to be revised

mkdir $BUILD_DIRECTORYcd $BUILD_DIRECTORYqmake $SOURCE_DIRECTORY/qtcreator.promake (or mingw32-make or nmake or jom, depending on your platform)this creates the Makefile in the $SOURCE_DIRECTORYI had to build it there and then$ make install INSTALL_ROOT=/<my absolute install path >

  That's the documentation snapshot for the upcoming next release of Qt Creator. So it contains documentation for things not available in earlier versions.
  The autotools project manager is not part of Qt Creator 2.4.

  You need to build the current unstable development version of Qt Creator (which will become 2.5), you can get the sources e.g. from gitorious here:
  (the link "Download master as .tar.gz), or use git to fetch it.

  What the documentation does not explain (I'll prepare a fix for that), is that the autotools project manager is disabled by default, and you need to first enable it:
  Help > About Plugins (or Qt Creator > About Plugins on Mac), enable Build Systems > AutotoolsProjectManager, and restart Qt Creator.
