aclocal.m4 error (AppWizard) - KDevelop 2.1.2

Good Day,

As I am new to KDevelop I am having trouble fixing an error I have 
encountered. My enviornment is as such:

[installed from pre-compiled package]KDevelop 2.1.2 (Using KDE 3.0.2) on 

When following the KDevelop Programming Handbook (included with my 
distro), I run into errors from within the Application Wizard when 
following "3. Creating New Applications" (output of error below). ||

In short, when it is creating aclocal.m4 it errors out. I've gone to the 
FSF web site and read up on the "GNU Build System" hoping for some 
clues, but no luck. I've search around for this specifically looking for 
kdevelop and aclocal (and the build system - appwizard), yet again no luck.

Could anyone help? Point me in the right direction or give me some 
clues... maybe some else and run into something similiar....?

Thanks for your time
~Ios Phere
