    Is it possible to take an open source project that one would normally build using the old "./configure, make, make install" routine and make an Xcode project out of it that one can build entirely using Xcode? If so, is there some sort of generic procedure for doing this that would work with most projects that use the "./configure, make, make install" procedure?

    Possible, yes, but there isn't a generic automatable way of doing it. You'll need to convert each step of the makefile into an appropriate build step or target in Xcode yourself.
