Description Mario A. Vazquez 2002-12-30 19:03:13 UTC
Description of problem:
Trying to compile any proyect from a standard C/C++ to a KDE specific proyect
result in the following error:

configure.in:103: error: m4_popdef: undefined macro: AC_Dest
autoconf/status.m4:844: AC_CONFIG_FILES is expanded from...
configure.in:103: the top level
autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 1
make[1]: *** [cvs] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2
sh: line 1: ./configure: No such file or directory

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Create any new proyect from KDevelop
2.  Try to compile it (Build/Make)
Actual results:
When creating the proyect files, KDevelop shows the previous error message and
do not allow to build the proyect.  DistClean and Rebuild, or Configure don´t
work either.  Haven´t tried with previously created proyects, but probably they
will fail too.

Expected results:
The proyect should compile without problems.

Additional info:
Made some test a month ago and found that KDevelop 2.1.X had problems with
autoconf 2.54 or greater.  It can be fixed by either:
1) downgrading to autoconf 2.53
2) replacing admin.tar.gz found in kdevelop/templates from a recent copy of
admin directory from kde-common in KDE cvs.  This requires QT 3.1, but since
that´s the one included I see no problem with that.
