Hallo everyone,

I'm new to KDE development and Im not shure, wether this is the correct place 
to post this.

I just tried to compile kde-edu from trunk. I got the following output from 

-- Found GMM++: /home/kde4dev/kde/include                                                   
-- The following external packages were located on your system.                             
-- This installation will have the extra features provided by these packages.               
+ OpenGL                                                                                    
+ Eigen                                                                                     
+ Plasma                                                                                    
+ libusb                                                                                    
+ libcfitsio                                                                                
+ libsbigudrv                                                                               
+ libnova                                                                                   
+ Plasma                                                                                    
+ OpenGL                                                                                    
+ Plasma                                                                                    
-- The following OPTIONAL packages could NOT be located on your system.                     
-- Consider installing them to enable more features from this software.                     
+ OCaml: OCaml is needed by Kalzium <http://caml.inria.fr/>                                 
+ LibFacile: libfacile is needed by Kalzium 
+ OpenBabel2, 2.2: OpenBabel is needed by Kalzium 
+ Boost.Python, 1.31: Kig can optionally use Boost.Python for Python scripting 
+ GNU Readline: A library for editing typed command lines 
Gives KAlgebra a console interface.                                                                                
+ Gmm++, 3.0: A generic C++ template library for sparse, dense and skyline 
matrices <http://home.gna.org/getfem/>  
Required to build Step.                                                                                            

Obviously, GMM++ was found (see first line), but it's still listed with the 
other not found optional packages (and as far as I understand it, Step would 
not have been built because of this, though I did not test it). I looked into 
it and came up with the attached patch. Is this the correct solution? If so: 
Could someone apply the patch for me?
