Help with compiling Kopete

I am trying, for the first time, to install a program (Kopete) by compiling it. I did the ./compile with no problem but when I do the make I get the errors listed at the end of this message. I have done some looking around and found some to say that I need to change my path but am not sure how to go about that.

Mandrake 9.1
KDE 3.1.0

erro message:

[dad@localhost kopete-0.7.2]$ make
make all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/dad/kopete-0.7.2'
Making all in kopete
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/dad/kopete-0.7.2/kopete'

Any help would be appreciated.

You need the KDE developer packages installed.

Kopete is not yet complete, and is still alpha software. I would recommend using Gaim instead.

I will try what you suggested and let you know how it goes. I have tried gaim, it is nice but still not "everything" I want and although Kopete is not everything I like a little bit better. So much to choose from out here.
