We may need to see this file as well (it'll probably contain
kdevelop's own support macros, which may have further
compatibility problems with autoconf 2.50).

This might be a problem, but that depends on how this macro
is defined (it's probably in acinclude.m4).

These are probably the culprit; I think the language macros
use a different syntax in 2.50.

This whole things seems fishy; why aren't they simply using
AC_PROG_LIBTOOL?  Isn't that the canonical way to use libtool?

At the very least you should log a bug report with the kdevelop
team to say the configure.ins they generate aren't compatible with
autoconf 2.50.
I'm sure Akim will be able to quickly point out what you need to
change in configure.in to make it work;  I just hope kdevelop won't
screw it up again after that.
