I recently came up with a generic approach for solving the problem of
configure only accepting prefixes which contain tcl/tk,kdelibs etc. but
your problem is worse as it will most likely have to be solved by
actually editing Makefiles (no big deal...) or even the source. Let me
know if you find a more elegant way of solving this mess !!!
