Subject : error making .tar.gz distribution

Error Class	: software bug
Error Location	: I don´t know
Priority	: low
Bug Description ---------------------------

when i try to make a tar.gz version of my program (that I originally
made with kdevelop 1.1 and slightly older versions of
automake/autoconf) from the project menu I get the following output:

rm -rf kollector-1.00
mkdir kollector-1.00
chmod 777 kollector-1.00
here=`cd . && pwd`; \
top_distdir=`cd kollector-1.00 && pwd`; \
distdir=`cd kollector-1.00 && pwd`; \
cd . \
  && automake --include-deps --build-dir=$here --srcdir-name=. --output-dir=$top_distdir --foreign Makefile
aclocal.m4: 2786: `AM_PROG_INSTALL' is obsolete; use `AC_PROG_INSTALL'
make: *** [distdir] Error 1
*** failed ***

How to repeat the error -------------------

make a project with kdevelop 1.1 and autoconf/automake versions that come
with debian linux 2.1, then upgrade to kdevelop 1.2 and newer

Choose from menu
project -> make distribution -> tgz

Bugfix or Workaround ----------------------

Changed line 2786 of file 'aclocal.m4' from 




you can also fix the problem by changing the version number of the
project, which causes the makefiles to be automatically regenerated using 
the (new versions of) automake/autoconf and fixes the problem.
