Building tqtinterface fails

I'm trying to build Trinity from SVN. I'm still using my old build scripts with automake. As I have not tested my build environment since last autumn, I wanted to make one run to ensure everything still works before trying other things. Basically, start with a known good environment.

According to recent list conversations, building with automake should still work with distros using older autotools.

Building tqtinterface failed immediately:

cp: cannot create regular file `admin/': No such file or directory
cp: cannot create regular file `admin/': No such file or directory
make: admin/Makefile.common: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `admin/Makefile.common'.  Stop.

There no longer is an svn admin directory in the tqtinterface sources.

The wiki says "The current SVN tree is being ported to CMake. You cannot build part of the tree with CMake and then start building with autoconf."

Do I now have to build tqtinterface with cmake? If so, then I according to the wiki I cannot build the remaining packages with autotools.

I saw nothing obvious in the list archives.
