Fwd: Small portability bug in kdevelop-0.4

In the head branch, there is a macro

AC_CHECK_LIB(dl, dlopen, [
I think adding this to the m4 stuff (and a
call to the macro in configure.in) and replacing 
-ldl with $LIBDL should be enough. However, I 
leave the testing up to you, as I don't have
the time myself...
