Seems your AM_CPPFLAGS solution is much nicer, than the looped macro

As this and other problems will tend to come up again and again, what
about a packager FAQ on the build service pages to collect these sort of
questions related to package building?

My question could be the first one there.

P.S. It seems pavuk now builds completely even with socks, ssl and all the
stuff it supports enabled.
Next project will be pixieplus KDE tool. But I first need to find out how
to make a release archive in KDE before I make RPM's. :-)
