Thanks, I tryed this but it didn't solve my problem.
I get the same error message

boubydev:~/kdevelop# make -f Makefile.cvs
aclocal -I .
kdevelop/ variable `LIBLEX' not defined
make: *** [all] Error 1

But now I cannot run ./configure any more because there is no such file.

I tryed to rename my /usr/bin/lex file with no result.
