The KDE version of libtool doesn't work with gcj. How on earth can that happen 
- or is it just me? Don't Redhat maintain both autotools and gcj, and might 
also have a passing interest in KDE? And unlike any other part of KDE I can't 
look at the libtool code and even begin to understand how to fix it. It 
passes something like a '-m' option to gcj which it doesn't understand as 
it's a gcc only thing.

As for using autotools to build a Mac OS X version of qtruby - they're utterly 
hopeless. There are long winded instructions in the qtruby INSTALL about how 
to circumvent the autotools problems.
