Had the same problem trying to recompile on the Alpha with -mieee. Looked
into it and discovered that the KDE guys extended the automake with a perl
script in the admin directory (admin/am_edit).
Running this script adds in the required fields to the Makefile.in files to
make the moc (meta object code -- for the signal/slot stuff) files. There
seems to be some script stuff to handle it automatically if you're pulling
off the cvs tree -- maybe that's why the maintainer doesn't have any
problems. Anyway, here's what I did to compile.
1: cd /usr/src
2: apt-get source <file>
3: cd <source-dir>
6: dpkg-buildpackage -nc
4: This will bomb out on the moc errors, but is need to get configure run and
the initial Makefile.in files made.
5: This does the KDE hacks to the Makefile.in files.
6: This builds the package skipping the configuration (which was done by 4,
doing it again would overwrite the Makefile.in files we just patched).
Hope that helps! -T
