The reason why 3_0_BRANCH's am_edit does not process the icons is
not because of KDE_ICON = AUTO but because they don't have a known
prefix (you should see lots of warning messages when running
Makefile.cvs and force-reedit locally) .

I think the simplest thing is to avoid all those hacks and simply
depend on KDE 3.1 .
