Description:

Kwest is a port of the popular Frotz interpreter to KDE, which allows you to play numerous text adventures (or interactive fiction games) in the Inform format.

Features to get excited about (or not) in Kwest are:
* Support for blorb files and cover art.
* Fairly complete Z-machine interpreter, based on Frotz 2.43, supporting color, styles and timed input. Not yet supported are sound and V6 pictures.
* Same input-editing facilities as Frotz: command history, tab completion, standard abrreviations.
* Fonts and colors are changeable on the fly through the GUI.

I am using Mandrake 10.1 and gcc 3.4.1 when running 'make' I get the following :

$ make
cd . && aclocal
acinclude.m4:44: warning: underquoted definition of KDE_PATH_X_DIRECT
run info '(automake1.9)Extending aclocal'
or see http://sources.redhat.com/automake/automake.html#Extending%20aclocal

Something is very wrong.
aclocal: autom4te failed with exit status: 1
make: *** [aclocal.m4] Error 1

any suggestions? I am a novice at this and am sure it is probably something stupid..but I would really like to get your program working.

Thanks
