k9copy without kde

Can you compile k9copy without kde (kde is not listed as a dependency). When I try to compile k9copy I get:

"checking for KDE... configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail. So, check this please and use another prefix!"

The about page says it's "A dvd backup tool for kde", so I'd say yes, you need it. Of course, you don't necessarily have to be running kde in order to use kde tools, you just need to have the proper libraries in place for them to use, just like any other program dependency.

According to apt, the current Debian package of k9copy has the following dependencies:

kdelibs4c2a (>= 4:3.5.4-1), libacl1 (>= 2.2.11-1), libart-2.0-2 (>= 2.3.16), libattr1 (>= 2.4.4-1), libaudio2, libc6 (>= 2.3.6-6), libdvdread3 (>= 0.9.6), libfam0, libfontconfig1 (>= 2.3.0), libfreetype6 (>= 2.2), libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.0), libice6, libidn11 (>= 0.5.18), libjpeg62, libpng12-0 (>= 1.2.8rel), libqt3-mt (>= 3:3.3.6), libsm6, libstdc++6 (>= 4.1.0), libx11-6, libxcursor1 (>> 1.1.2), libxext6, libxft2 (>> 2.1.1), libxi6, libxinerama1, libxrandr2, libxrender1, libxt6, zlib1g (>= 1:1.2.1), dvdauthor, dvd+rw-tools, vamps
You probably don't have to worry about the exact version numbers if you're compiling from source, as long as use recent ones. And remember that and you're using the distro-packaged versions of the libraries, you'll probably also need to install the corresponding "<library>-dev" packages in order to get the necessary header files for compilation.
