 Nobody here is going to download KDE3 just to find out. You'll have
 to give a few examples.

 automake 1.6 requires autoconf 2.52. But from my experience,
 automake 1.4 and 1.5 can be used interchangeably.

 If you change any of the auto* tools, make sure that all auto*
 generated files are rebuilt before first use. The exact options
 may depend on the project directory layout, but something along
 the lines of

 rm -f config.cache config.h
 aclocal -I m4 && autoheader && automake && autoconf

 should work.
