I'm using ACE (but not TAO) under KDevelop.  However, I didn't start
developing the project from within KDevelop, so the project already had
it's own Makefiles.  So when I created the project, I just used the
"Custom" project template and copied over the existing Makefile into the
new project directory, and KDE now runs that when I click the "make"
button.  This probably isn't the type of solution you're looking for (it
doesn't use autoconf/make), but it does work for me.

If you would be interested in collaborating on a new project template
that includes the ACE/TAO libraries, I'd be glad to work on that with
you, as it would help me with future projects...
