Can't install amarok.


I'm trying to install amarok 1.2 from source because i couldn't found a rpm file; so when i run ./configure, it give me this:

checking for meinproc... /opt/kde3/bin/meinproc
checking for kconfig_compiler... not found
configure: error: The important program kconfig_compiler was not found!
Please check whether you installed KDE correctly.

KDE(3.1) was installed by my distro when i installed it.
I've done a google search and i install kdelibs-3.1.5 but after that everything stop working, so i uninstalled it.

What can i do????

instead of
./configure

use

./configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`

this is there in the INSTALL file
