configure IMO broken

I am attempting to install an entirely new kde from head. I've installed QT
3.2 in a new directory - /data/kde-head. There is still an old qt install in
The problem arises when I attempted to run configure in kdelibs without first
installing kde-support in the new directory. I supplied all of the correct
arguments, --with-qt-dir, etc. Yet it still broke in executing some of the
binaries built with that install.
This is because there were kde-support binaries sitting in the OLD qtdir. So,
it added a -L/home/rmiller/kde3.1, even when this was obviously not
appropriate and broke things.
My proposed solution is, when it checks for dependencies, to also look in that
directory for libqt-mt, and if it finds it and it is NOT $QTDIR (or the
contents of --with-qt-dir, as appropriate), then throw a warning. Something
to the effect of
configure: QTDIR is /data/kde-head, but libxslt was found in
/home/rmiller/kde3.1, which also happens to contain libqt-mt. This is
probably NOT what you want and may result in a broken install or not being
able to successfully compile at all. Please install kde-support in
/data/kde-head to resolve this problem.
