 This was using Debian sid (unstable), with the appropriate packages
 (kdelibs / qt3 / + -dev packages of same) installed.

 The solution ..

 Edit your ./configure file.  Find the reference to 'klineedit' (there should
 only be one of these in the file).  The line looks like this:

 if test -f actest.cpp && grep klineedit actest.cpp > /dev/null; then

 Insert the ignore case parameter in for that grep, since actest.cpp
 does contain KLineEdit (and it fails to find it, since grep defaults
 to case sensitive searches).  So, change it thus:

 if test -f actest.cpp && grep -i klineedit actest.cpp > /dev/null; then

 ./configure then works.

 Bloody marvellous.

 Stupidly badly documented on the net (lots of people have had similar
 problems with various other packages -- it's not a KimDaBa thing by any
