Unfortunately, the procedure is not yet listed on the wiki. However, for 
applications that use automake procedure is roughly as follows:

1) Remove the original 'admin' folder
2) Use script experimental/qt3-tqt3/convert_existing_qt3_app_to_tqt3
3) Use script experimental/kde-tde/convert_existing_kde3_app_to_tde
4) Add new 'admin' folder from the main/common/admin
5) Try to build the application and resolve problems that occur :)

What application do you want to port?
