   It probably means that you don't have the CDF libraries installed, or they 
were not found by Kst.  If you run ./configure --help you will see some Kst 
options.  One of them is:

  --with-cdf=DIR          where the root of CDF is installed

   This will help Kst find CDF.  You can then watch the configure output as it 
runs (or after) to see if it was able to find the CDF libraries.  It wlil 
look something like:

checking for CDFlib in -lcdf... yes

   Does that help?
