There are two scripts in the TDE source archive
(experimental/qt3-tqt3/convert_existing_qt3_app_to_tqt3 and
experimental/kde-tde/convert_existing_kde3_app_to_tde).  Look at those
scripts, make any modifications needed for your system, and run them from
within the original source archive.

If you want to help by adding a new application to TDE, you could first
import the original sources to a new GIT repository, then clean up the old
Makefile.in and configure files and commit that as a cleanup commit. 
After that run the conversion scripts, verify buildability, and commit the
converted sources before pushing the entire repository up to GitHub or
similar.

Note that you will probably want to delete the old admin module and
replace it with the current TDE admin submodule.  You can do that from
within your converted source directory as follows:
rm -rf admin
git submodule add
http://system@.../scm/git/tde-common-admin admin
git submodule add
http://system@.../scm/git/tde-common-cmake cmake
git submodule update --init
git commit -a -m "Added common directories"
git push origin master

Hope this helps!
