I have a problem configuring kdesdk CVS head.

I get the following message:

checking for KDE paths... defaults
checking for dcopidl... /opt/kde3/bin/dcopidl
checking for dcopidl2cpp... /opt/kde3/bin/dcopidl2cpp

configure: error: The important program makekdewidgets was not found!
Please check whether you installed KDE correctly.

The check for makekdewidgets is only run when configure assumes to have KDE 
3.3. This decision is based on the fact that I have installed Qt 3.3. But my 
KDE is only 3.2.1. So the acinclude.m4 file is wrong here.

What to do?

I changed line 593 in admin/acinclude.m4.in to

               if test "$kde_qtsubver" -le 3; then

but I do not think that this is a correct solution. There should be a better 
way used to detect currently used KDE version.
