ksmoothdock error


i downloaded a program called KSMOOTHDOCK fromm www.kde-look.org. It is a Mac OS X-like dock, which i have been looking and waiting for since i've been using linux. i finally found one !!! I downloaded the .tar.gz, i unzipped it, and i read the installation instructions, which i might add, weren't very descriptive. they were good, but not very descriptive. i got to the first step, go to the directory containing the files, and do "./configure". i did that, and i get the error below.

SO, the /opt/kde3/include directory must not be it, it must want the /lib dir ??? I replace the include dir (as above) with the lib dir, and i get the exact same error.


So whats wrong ? i am using SuSE 8.2 pro, and im trying to fix my own linux problems with minimal consulting to LQ, but this one has me stumped completely.
