Problem with installing software

I'm using RedHat 7.2 and when i'm trying to install 'kdvd-0.1' and 'everybody' the readme file asked me to run ./configure before starting install. But there are some error message when i'm trying to run ./configure. The error messages are someting like, that i mention below-

creating libtool
checking whether NLS is requested... yes
checking for msgfmt... /usr/bin/msgfmt
checking for gmsgfmt... /usr/bin/msgfmt
checking for xgettext... /usr/bin/xgettext
checking for KDE... libraries /usr/lib, headers /usr/include/kde
checking for extra includes... no
checking for extra libs... no
checking for kde headers installed... configure: error: your system is not able
to compile a small KDE application!
Check, if you installed the KDE header files correctly.

So what can I do now? If anyone know about this please help me.

its asking for KDE Source headers, so u will either have to download them or get them of the disk.

Any other questions just ask

Dude, that's a harsh error message. "You don't have to balls to handle this install, and it's just a puny KDE program, weakling". If you do have the kde Source Headers installed, you may have to pass the location onto ./configure Something like
./configure --KDE=/opt/KDE3
might work

Any luck yet?
