The solution implemented is sufficient at this time.   The solution suggested by Nicola should be added as an enhancement request.

I went ahead and made a change which automatically adds the correct variable for the project type.

I think a better solution is what you're describing.  Currently the PC gui is restricted to simply adding libs to the project without regard for which variable they are assigned to in the makefile.  What's needed is a per-project configuration/preferences panel like the one in Xcode.

ProjectCenter should allow you to separately configure:




for every project. :-)

Using only ADDITIONAL_GUI_LIBS is usually good enough
for applications, but it would be nice to be able to set
the other ones as well. :-)

Not only ADDITIONAL_GUI_LIBS is not used when linking CLI tools,
but even when linking an application (that uses them all),
the flags appear in different position on the linker
command-line, which might be important on some platforms. ;-)

So the best solution is to have all the flags available.

When you add more libraries to be linked, the variable added to GNUmakefile.preamble is ADDITIONAL_GUI_LIBS.   This is only appropriate for applications, not for TOOLS.

For tools the variable added should be ADDITIONAL_TOOL_LIBS.
