So are you actually using srcdir==builddir?

I've tried multiple times losing at least an hour now. It seems that on my 
system, with the latest KDE_2_2_BRANCH, srcdir==builddir _will_ decisively 
fail. When I configure in another dir everything works all right. Note that 
the same thing variably happens on other kde packages, on certain systems.

The build tool called automake which doesn't care about preserving any 
semantics even when a simple unrelated parameter changes. :< Hmm, maybe such 
bugs can be attributed also to lack of capacity of implementation language as 
well as the designers.

I'm going to have to write an alternative build system for kdevelop sometime, 
remind me so that it doesn't get lost in my local TODO. :P
