Konstruct

Konstruct is a build system which helps you install KDE releases and applications on your system. It downloads defined source tarballs, checks their integrity, decompresses, patches, configures, builds, and installs them. A complete KDE installation should be as easy as "cd meta/kde; make install". Optionally, you can install additional applications like KOffice or KDevelop (for example, "cd apps/office/koffice; make install").

            The first time I installled konstruct, it compiled most stuff fine. However, since then, I haven't been able to get past this error:
            make[2]: *** [configure-work/kdelibs-3.1.3a/configure] Error 77

            Just for the record: This user manually added a new
            parameter to the scripts and failed to insert a space
            before. I pointed him to his error but every new log
            he showed me still showed his mistake so no wonder
            it (the Java detection) never worked for him.

            I can confirm this now; having rebuilt from scratch, I got
            the same problem. A make clean/make in the tools/sfio
            directory was all that was needed to let konstruct
            continue.

            I just had this, too -- I found that after cd'ing into
            konstruct/misc/graphwiz/work/tools/sfio and doing a
            make clean/make, the problem went away. I've been
            playing around a lot with KDE on my machine, though, so I
            can't guarantee that it wasn't something else I did that
            fixed it.
