Re: [SLE] kde-config not found error - found a solution
Well after a lot of searching I found a solution.. thought it would be worth
posting in case someone else runs into this problem. This was posted by Eric
Laffoon (Quanta web developer) on 26 Feb 2001 (found the posting in a search

The are two possible solutions to this problem:
1. Type:
locate kde-config
export KDECONFIG=$KDEDIR/share/config/kde-config (or your path)

2. If you have an old version of kde2 without kde-config edit
config.cache and add these two lines:

Run ./configure again - configure will read the data from
config.cache and will not check for kde-config

The second solution worked for me, and configure ran without generating any
more errors. Make on the other hand is happy generating pages of errors. I
don't know if they are related to the tweak to config.cache or other
problems... haven't looked into it yet.
