Hi, I don't think I explained how the patch works well enough
it *does not* hard code any directories into the configure system, in fact,
it hard codes less. It uses the kde-config utility supplied to work out the
correct directories to use. The standard acinclude.m4.in (that kdevelop gave
me for my project, anyway), does not do this.
