kstartperf (tdesdk)

While troubleshooting why I no longer can use kompare built from GIT, I ran across this in my configure output:

checking if kstartperf should be compiled... no

Curious, I discovered that building the app is disabled in the tdesdk root through the DO_NOT_COMPILE variable.

A little more searching revealed that this has been the default since 3.5.10.

Curious, I disabled that command and kstartperf built.

But doesn't run. For example:

kstartperf kedit
kedit: symbol lookup error: /opt/trinity/lib/ undefined symbol: lt_dlopen

1. Although kstartperf is a simple program, is there a reason why this app is not built by default (a carryover from the KDE days)?

2. Seems I might have discovered another bug with building tdesdk. Seems ltdl is missing from the linking process. I suspect if we solve either run-time bug we solve both.
