[Qt-creator] Generating .pro file from a Makefile?

I may be barking up the wrong tree here, but here goes:

I've got a program written in C that I've inherited from a former co-worker, that comes with little to no documentation.  It has a working Makefile already.

I'm attempting to learn how it works via reading the source code.  Since I'm fairly comfortable with Qt Creator, especially features that would be helpful in this case such as Follow Symbol Under Cursor, Find Usages, etc., I'd like to bring it in under Creator, ideally just by parsing the existing Makefile and creating a .pro file that matches.

Is there an easy way to do that?  All I know of right now is to just create a new project, and manually add all the .h & .c files by hand (or doing a qmake -project).  But in some ways, I'm not sure I even want to create a .pro file that is capable of creating a Makefile, since I don't really want to overwrite an existing, perfectly working Makefile...
