Sounds like a reasonable idea, so I'll play the role of PITA --- I mean devil's advocate. :-)

I have the following in my (T)Qt3 build scripts:


That build option exists as a carryover from the days when Slackware still supported KDE3/Qt3.

* What happens right now with automake 1.11 if I delete that build option? Will (T)Qt3 find the installed libmng headers and libraries? Or will (T)Qt3 build without any mng support?

* When I use that build option, is my (T_Qt3 package using built-in mng support and ignoring the installed libmng package?

* If you delete the built-in mng support from (T)Qt3, I presume I need to update my build script and delete the -qt-imgfmt-mng build option?

* If you remove the built-in mng support, what happens when a distro does not support libmng? (Unlikely, but what if?)

* What harm is there to retain the built-in mng support and just update the make/configure files to be automake 1.12 compatible?
