Conversion applications (that uses automake) from KDE3 to TDE has roughly the 
following steps:

1) Remove original 'admin' folder and other unnecessary files generated during 
build.
2) Run script convert_existing_qt3_app_to_tqt3 to convert from Qt3 to TQt3.
3) Run script convert_existing_kde3_app_to_tde to convert from KDE3 API to TDE 
R14 API.
4) Add new 'admin' folder from common TDE repository.
5) Check undesirable renaming. For example, 'qui' is in some languages ​​
(French, Spanish, Italian) common word and conversion Qt3 => TQt3 may 
inappropriately convert it to tqui - related to translations and 
documentation.
6) Try to build and enjoy :)

Note: I know we need to document this process on Wiki.
