Hi Falk,

I deleted kdevelop/kdevelop/ and did a cvs-update which
downloaded a new kdevelop/kdevelop/ but the problem is still the

There is a "$(LEXLIB)" in kdevelop/kdevelop/ and this variable
is not defined on my machine so make fails when I type "make -f
Makefile.cvs" with:

kdevelop/ variable `LEXLIB' not defined
make: *** [all] Error 1

There is also a "$(LIBDL)" in kdevelop/kdevelop/ after the
"$(LEXLIB)" and this variable is also not defined on my machine.

Are $LEXLIB and $LIBDL defined on your machine?
What are these variables for?

When I edit my kdevelop/kdevelop/ to remove these variables and
"make -f" works but "make" don't.
I get the following errors:

./kdlgedit/libkdlgedit.a(kdlgedit.o): In function
kdlgedit.o(.text+0x15): undefined reference to `dlopen'
kdlgedit.o(.text+0x26): undefined reference to `dlerror'
kdlgedit.o(.text+0xe4): undefined reference to `dlsym'

Thanks for the help anyway,
