arts isn't supported for kde releases >= 3.1.4. You have several ways to solve 
this issue depending on the used automake/autoconf releases. 

1. try 
	configure --help 

if you find a line with 
  --without-arts        build without aRts default=detect

you can call ./configure <your opts> --without-arts to disable arts support 

2. If topic one does not work create dummy files for the arts applications 
artsc-config and mcopidl using the following commands: 
	true >/opt/kde3/bin/artsc-config 
	chmod a+x /opt/kde3/bin/artsc-config 
	true >/opt/kde3/bin/mcopidl
	chmod a+x /opt/kde3/bin/mcopidl

then reconfigure. 

3. If you are familiar with the automake/autoconf build process you may remove 
the lines in acinclude.m4 

KDE_FIND_PATH(mcopidl, MCOPIDL, [$kde_default_bindirs], 
KDE_FIND_PATH(artsc-config, ARTSCCONFIG, [$kde_default_bindirs], 

After that you have to run 

 make -f Makefile.cvs am

and then do a normal configure. Please note that this may requires detailled 
knowledge about the automake/autoconf tool chain internals in case of 
failures. (There are some unusable automake/libtool/autoconf combinations
