Question Error when installing KDE 3.1


I am currently running KDE 3.0 on Slackware 8.1, and trying to upgrade to KDE 3.1 using konstruct. When compiling the graphviz package, I receive an error, but unfortunately it doesn't give me a lot of info so I haven't been able to resolve it with google.

Here are the last few lines where the error seems to occur:


sfvprintf.lo(.text+0x12e): undefined reference to `va_copy'
sfvprintf.lo(.text+0x84e): undefined reference to `va_copy'
sfvprintf.lo(.text+0xb72): undefined reference to `va_copy'
../../tools/sfio/.libs/ more undefined references to `va_copy' follow
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

make[1]: *** [dep-../../misc/graphviz] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/kevin/konstruct/apps/gideon'

I haven't been able to find any documentation on this, so if anyone can help I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you.

i've just a workaround, not the solution
I've update my kde 2.1 to 3.1 downloadink kdebase as tar.gz (source), compiled and installed. It works fine.

By the way, before do this you need to have installed qt 3.1.

I tried installing the kdebase package to my home directory where kde 3.1 is installed, but I still receive the same error. Even if I try to compile the graphviz package manually, without konstruct, I have the same problem.

Is there anyway to make konstruct skip this package and continue with the kde 3.1 upgrade? Or can I finish the upgrade myself without konstruct?
