I guess I need to clarify what I meant about "Human Factors Ambiguity" a bit.

If a menu selection says "compile" then "compile" is what it should be trying 
to do, not "make".  This is simply a matter if naming things so that they set 
expectations properly and eliminate the need to read documentation up front.

Put aside the ability to customize things.  That is necessary due to the 
diversity of development environments, etc.

If I see a command like "compile" in a menu, I expect it to call the compiler 
for me, not attempt to "make" my project.
