I can build tdebindings against ruby 1.8.7 and 1.9.1 without failure against TQt3.

I thought I'd give qtsharp a whirl. I had to install mono and pnet. I received build errors for a lack of

Looks like that file is part of some kind of Qt C# bindings that needs to exist before building tdebindings. The best I can tell those bindings no longer exist.

I found old discussion threads that seem to indicate qtsharp has been broken and unsupported in (k)tdebindings for many years. The (very last line) indicates likewise.

The short term solution is to use the DO_NOT_COMPILE option, which already exists in

Building against ruby 1.9.1 requires a set of patches, all of which are ruby 1.9.x related.

Building against 1.8.7 required some nominal patching too.

With both there are strange messages that look like failures, apparently not fatal, but need attention. I notice differences between the older kdebindings binary package and the one I build. That tells me some files are not building.

I do not have any of the tdebindings support packages installed, which likely makes a difference.
