That is correct.

But you can take my configure.in.in code from kdecore and add it to 
where it is needed. It creates a LIB_IDN variable that you can add to 
the libraries' _LIBADD.

Now, why is anything linking to libidn? There are interfaces in kidna.h 
and kresolver.h and they already do the conversion from QString to 
libidn's internal Unicode format.

(Unless, of course, the code in question is a KDE-independant library)
