Hi all, 
I have tried to get kdevplatform to compile and it will not compile with the 
teamwork plugin.  (Want to help with some quanta stuff).
Disabling this plugin lets it compile with no errors.

svn co from anonsvn last night (version 821406)

I am running Kubuntu 8.04 with KDE 4.1 beta packages.

The last lines of the build are below:

atomicity.h seems to be provided by libstdc++6-4.2-dev package.  It is also 
provided by the same package but versions libstdc++6-4.1, and libstdc++5-3.3. 

My belief is that this indicates that the teamwork plugin is not compatible 
with g++ version 4.2. (4.2.3 to be exact) (or perhaps the kubuntu version is 
The kdevelop website indicates that you only need g++ version 3.3 or greater 
(or compatible).
Or is cmake looking at the wrong library?
Has anyone been able to get it to compile under g++ (and libstc++) of these 

I should be able to provide any more info if needed...
