Compiling KDE 3.3

I'm attempting to compile KDE 3.3 on Vector Linux (based on Slackware) and running into a problem. I compiled all the pre-reqs and I compiled aRts without any problems. Now when I attempt to do a 'make' on kdelibs I get the following error message:

make all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/kdelibs-3.3.1'
Making all in dcop
make[2]: Entering directory `/root/kdelibs-3.3.1/dcop'
cd .. && /bin/sh /root/kdelibs-3.3.1/admin/missing --run autoheader
autoheader: error: shell error while sourcing /tmp/ah29101/
make[2]: *** [] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/kdelibs-3.3.1/dcop'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/kdelibs-3.3.1'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Any help / suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

that's a tough one..
most likely calls in not yet implemented in your version of autoheader
no easy fix but you can think about upgrading autoheader or try downgrading the kde autotools ???
which will require swapping the admin folder for a previous version and runing
make -f admin/Makefile.common cvs
then try again

Thanks for the suggestion. I ended up updating my version of autoconf and it seems to be compiling ok now. We'll see...

First of all make sure you are using autoconf/automake 1.4. As I know, KDE won't compile with automakes newer than 1.4
