The one from trunk kdebindings. Any help with Qyoto would be great, it just
needs a little bit more work to be quite useful.

I not sure about the macros. It should be a matter of doing a 'make -f
Makefile.cvs', and configure with a prefix pointing the kde4 kdelibs.
To build trunk kdebindings, you need to check out unsermake from
kde/trunk/kdenonbeta/unsermake and add it to your $PATH environment variable.
The easiest way to build the Smoke library might be to download QtRuby 1.4.5
That version doesn't need unsermake, only automake/autoconf, and you don't
have to build and install kde4 libs. On the other hand, the configure will
look for ruby, so you'll need to have that installed.
