it's almost official the KDE4 won't have the autotools anymore as build 
system. The new build system should be cmake (www.cmake.org), that is a 
generator of Makefile's.

The official announcement of the switching will be (probably) done in some 
days, and at that point every Makefile.am and configure.in.* will be 
considered deprecated in flavour of the CMakeFIle.txt and ConfigureChecks.txt
The needed version of cmake is so fare the 2.3.4, that can be downloaded here: 

In the meanwhile, make sure your application compile fine with cmake, and that 
cmake does all the configure checks that the ./configure already does. So, if 
you add or remove any file, make sure to change the CMakeFiles.txt and 
(still) the Makefile.am.
