KDE3 needs automake 1.5 and autoconf 2.5 for generating build-files.
Decision to use newer versions of these was made to be able to compile
KDE3 stuff better on non-linux platforms. You can have different versions 
of autoconf and automake in your system at the same time if needed but
I personally have not seen any problems with just upgrading my
automake/autoconf. There's even still files for older automake/autoconf 
in admin prefixed as old-* so you should be able to generate buildfiles 
with older automake/autoconf if you remove old-.

As I've understood kdenonbeta is for last distilling before including
into official packages (or fading away as dead project as taking a look
at kdenonbeta shows:|). So it should have at least alpha-version quality 
that uml tool IMHO doesn't have yet. Second problem is that having project 
in kdenonbeta requires kde cvs-server accounts for every one of us. What 
I propose is that instead of ugly highjacking we just fork the project and 
start new project in SourceForge or maybe better in Savannah 
[http://savannah.gnu.org/]. Good consequence is that project gets at last a 
real name that sound better that plain UML Tool:) I can take project managing 
stuff on my shoulders right now if needed.

What do you think about it?
