OK, I looked at the source. This is definitely not a debian bug.

But I would still consider this an upstream bug. Either the file is
named "kexidb/tristate.h" or it is named "tristate.h". With both choices
it should be put at the right place, that
is /usr/include/kde/kexidb/tristate.h for the first case,
and /usr/include/kde/tristate.h in the second case.

This will of course work, but I consider it as an ugly hack.

I see how they work around the problem using a lot of configure code. It
would be nice if just something along the lines of
[echo "No kexi found, aborting";exit 1])
would simply work.
