Those are the same options that I pass to every KDE Branch 3.5 module.

Good Question. It is definitely NOT something that I have added to my

One frustrating thing I need to add to this: the last time this
happened, I just kept trying to compile kdebase with no alterations
made to kdebase/konqueror/Makefile.am and eventually, it just started
working again. Then this problem just started up again, and I

kdebase/konqueror/keditbookmarks just started compiling perfectly
