Crippling problem with KDevelop after upgrading to

Hello, all.  I am completely hobbled in KDevelop since upgrading to  On 3.5.12, all worked fine.  Now, I cannot compile.  Not
being a heavy duty programmer, I am somewhat hampered in troubleshooting
this but it has me stopped in my tracks at work.

I added a new .ui file and it corresponding subclasses and tried to
compile.  It failed immediately with an error about tqt missing but I'm
building a qt3 application.  I ran distclean followed by automake and
friends.  When I run configure, I receive a warning about:

checking if TQt is available... no
configure: WARNING: You are attempting to compile Trinity without the
Trinity Qt Interface installed. Please install libtqtinterface-dev and
try again!

I've checked and libtqtinterface-dev is installed.  I don't know why
it's even checking for TQt.

When I try to build, I get:

/usr/share/qt3/bin/moc /home/jsullivan/gitISCS/iscs/spm/src/acceptcadialog.h acceptcadialog.moc
Qt meta object compiler
moc: Too many input files specified
Usage: moc [options] <header-file>
-o file Write output to file rather than stdout
-f[file] Force #include, optional file name
-p path Path prefix for included file
-i Do not generate an #include statement
-k Do not stop on errors
-nw Do not display warnings
-v Display version of moc
make[2]: *** [acceptcadialog.moc] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2
*** Exited with status: 2 ***

What is going on here? Is there a bug where the output file in the moc
command is not being preceded with a -o?

I also thought it a bad indication when I checked my Qt Options for the
project and the Qt3 directory was set to /usr and in glaring red
(meaning it is not a valid qt3 directory).  I changed it back
to /usr/share/qt3 but it is still showing as red.

I'm very badly stuck on a major project so all help is deeply
appreciated.  Thanks - John
