kdevelop-base has obsolete config.guess
config.guess in the file incadmin.tar.gz in kdevelop-base is dated 2002-10-21.
The same file in the old version of Ubuntu is dated 2007-03-06. A new project
created with KDevelop on DragonFly fails to recognize the operating system.
There seems to be also a bug in libtool. When I create a project on Ubuntu and
rsync it to DFly, and try to configure and compile it there, libtool spawns a
huge number of shells and fills the process table.

I made a test project using KDevelop 3.5.5; it still had the 2002
config.guess. I looked in the tarballs in the KDevelop package and found one
with a 2005 date, but not the 2002 version. Copying config.guess
from /usr/pkg/share/automake-1.11 results in successfully configuring. I'll
have to trace kdevelop while it's making a project to figure out where the old
file is coming from.
