Hi aDe,

I tried your patch with kdevelop, and here is the autput when trying to run 
autofoo from inside kdevelop for a brand new project:

cd '/home/tap/test/foo2' && WANT_AUTOCONF_2_5="1" WANT_AUTOMAKE_1_6="1" 
gmake -f Makefile.cvs && mkdir '/home/tap/test/foo2/debug' && 
cd '/home/tap/test/foo2/debug' && 
CXXFLAGS="-O0 -g3" "/home/tap/test/foo2/configure" --enable-debug=full && 
cd '/home/tap/test/foo2/debug' && WANT_AUTOCONF_2_5="1" WANT_AUTOMAKE_1_6="1" 
gmake -k 
This Makefile is only for the CVS repository
This will be deleted before making the distribution

--version: not found
gmake[1]: *** [cvs] Error 1
gmake: *** [all] Error 2
*** KDE requires autoconf 2.53 or newer

Unfortunately I don't have time to go further, I'm just about to escape for 10 
days vacation.
