The stuff under python (SIP/PyQt/PyKDE) doesn't use auto* for its build 
system. So there is a bit of trickery involved in making auto* invoke the 
real build system.

Personally, I maintain packages of the SIP, PyQt and PyKDE outside of 
kde-bindings and I haven't had any problems with the build system. It is also 
packaged for quite a few other systems and I haven't seen too many complaints 
about it. So I don't think it is _that_ bad. :-)

Besides, that's why we can it beta testing.

Email me off-list and explain which switches etc you are using with configure 
and I'll try to fix it as quickly as I can.
