I could/would help you for free if you donate to TDE :)

I ported recently my favorite movie player to TDE without any major issues,
after the friendly guys here provided some key information on how to do it.

Of course one should have fixed this and that here and there.
For example libtool fixed like

cat /usr/share/aclocal/libtool.m4 /usr/share/aclocal/ltoptions.m4 /usr/share/aclocal/ltversion.m4 /usr/share/aclocal/ltsugar.m4 /usr/share/aclocal/lt~obsolete.m4
> aclocal.m4

I hope this helps
