Hello, everyone. I am running FreeBSD 6.0-Release 2 with KDE 3.5.3_2 installed 
via ports. I am trying to compile kopete 0.12.0 from source since it was not 
included in the kdenetwork installation, however the 'gmake' command fails 
with the following error message:

libtool: link: cannot find the library `'
gmake[4]: *** [libkopeteui.la] Error 1
gmake[4]: Leaving directory 
gmake[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
gmake[3]: Leaving directory 
gmake[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
gmake[2]: Leaving directory `/home/jdjennin/Source/kopete-0.12.0/kopete'
gmake[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jdjennin/Source/kopete-0.12.0'
gmake: *** [all] Error 2

It is not naming a library that is missing which is most unnatural. I cannot 
seem to find anyone else who is having this error, nor does the kopete 
mailing list give any help. I don't receive any strange error messages during 
the configure script except for one which I cannot seem to fix, so they may 
be related:

checking for libjpeg6b... no
checking for libjpeg... no
configure: WARNING:
There is an installation error in jpeg support. You seem to have only one
of either the headers _or_ the libraries installed. You may need to either
provide correct --with-extra-... options, or the development package of
libjpeg6b. You can get a source package of libjpeg from http://www.ijg.org/
Disabling JPEG support.

 However, if Kopete can be installed from the ports (It was the last time I 
used KDE version 3.5.2) then why can it not be compiled from the kopete 
website source? Thanks for any help.
