Need Antlr 2.x or higher
I am building kwave and kwave need po2xml.
The po2xml tool should be in the kdesdk but its not there.
I have kde 4.9.5 from ktown (
when I run "cmake" on top of the kdesdk sorce tree I get

cmake .
(In the end) ↓

-- The following OPTIONAL packages could NOT be located on your system.
-- Consider installing them to enable more features from this software.
  * Antlr (2.x or higher)  <>
    Language tool for constructing recognizers, compilers, etc
    Used for the po2xml and swappo tools.

and can't find a slackbuild for antlr.
Antlr seem to a advance software so I'm taking it easy. I mean don' feel like experiment on my own. I also wonder why there is no slackbuild. Tried google. I need help...

'po2xml' tends not to be included in kdesdk packages.
Suggest : Plug out a 'po2xml' from a random version of a "poxml package".
Example that works with kdesdk-4.9.x
> amd64 or i386 : Unpack, and # cp po2xml /usr/bin/
*** Works OK with 'kwave-0.8.9'.

Note 1 : antlr.Slackbuild is the first hit with Google : antlr.Slackbuild
A usable source
> antlr_2.7.7.orig.tar.gz

Note 2 : Running 'cmake .' in the top directory is not correct.
Default is : cd kwave-0.8.9/ && mkdir build && cd build/ && cmake .. && make
