Hi Daniel. I'm happy to see in this room (:=))

The problem is to use automake program (from GNU autotools package) instead 
unsermake (witch is not supported by digiKam team).

automake is an old program, a mittle bit complicated to manage but very 
powerfull. unsermake have been developped by KDE team to remplace automake, 
but, it's not finalized and can break compilation. We have no time to debug 
another BUILD tools, and we want to support the standard way diffused on all 
linux box.

Also, in the future (KDE4), the new tool CMake will be used. it's a powerfull 
remplacant of automake. This is why i won't lost some time with unsermake. 
When digikam and co will be ported to Qt4/KDE4, CMake will be used instead 

Here, on my computers (2 at home, 15 in my office), i'm trying to compile 
digiKam and co under a lots of linux box (Mandriva 2005/2006/2007, Suse 10.1, 
Kubuntu) and all use automake.
