Tried that (hence the patches sent earlier today). tqt, arts, kdelibs,
dbus-tqt and kdebase built after some patching, but when I hit
kdenetwork and tried to build it via autotools I got the FTBFS which
started this thread :( and comments from Robert that the SVN trunk of
the non-cmakeable modules is not buildable with autotools either at
present. It seems that the autotools machinery is getting something
wrong such that TQt is not being picked up properly, I'd guess. (Plainly
it works sometimes, because the SVN log contains recent mentions of
fixes of FTBFS errors: hence this report.)

(btw, I think what you're doing with Trinity is awesome. A parallel-
installable KDE3 eventually atop Qt4: it's what the KDE devs should have
done all along :) )
