Didn´t find that...

there are several ways to get it worked.
Did you try it?
several switches should make it possible:

configure [--with-qt-dir=...] [--with-qt-includes=...]

and of course:
configure --help 

the acinclude.m4 (which is used for detecting the pathes) searches in
the following dirs...
for the qt-libraries:

$QTDIR/lib $QTDIR $QTLIB /usr/lib/qt/lib /usr/X11R6/lib /usr/lib
/usr/local/qt/lib /usr/lib/qt /usr/lib/qt2/lib and where the x-libraries
were found.

in this order... (as you can see... many directories)

and it searches for the filemask libqt.* inside one of these

After finding the first directory on which this rule apply it tries to
compile a little program. If THIS will succeed you are able to run
qt-applications and configure would go ahead.

To be on the save side I advice to remove config.cache before invoking

If your distribution is an exoctic one and you can´t find your path
inside the list above you should set $QTDIR or $QTLIB... in a way that
your shell will know it after the command!!

if you find your qt-lib-path inside this list the problem is another one
and you should have a look in the config.log... there is written why
conftest (the so called test application) couldn´t be compiled.

a standard file of KDE is used (and I, personally, think these
algorithms are great)... so you will get the same trouble with other KDE
application, which apply to this algorithm.

re-installing the stuff then it worked???
Sounds really strange...

BTW: Flaming around won´t get all the stuff compiled...
I wish you to get kdevelop working, creating a project, publishing it,
having success with it and at the end....
bug reports like this!

oohhh sveglia.... il mondo e' ammalato, ma x colpa di chi.........
