Building KDE from CVS?

I've been building KDE from CVS (gentoo linux) and have found this error when 
building kdelibs or kdebase. (from make -f Makefile.cvs)

*** Creating configure error: possibly undefined macro: AC_CHECK_MKSTEMP
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
make[1]: *** [cvs] Error 1

A quick work around is to delete AC_CHECK_MKSTEMP macro from
but I suspect there is a less manual solution. Reading the autoconf
documentation didn't help much as it barely mentions "m4_pattern_allow."

Any light would helpful, thanks!
