While compiling KDE 3.5.5 (from stable sources) on a almost-pristine(*) FC6/Zod machine, I get a number of "Present But Cannot Be Compiled" warnings.

config.log tells you details about the warnings, the rest is here:

I am not sure what "the AC_PACKAGE_NAME lists" are; is this a good place to report them (and is anyone interested)?

Oh.  I think there was a bug in Autoconf 2.60 and earlier that when a
bug report address wasn't given, this could be output in some instances.
  AC_INIT([package], [version], [bugreport-address])

this shouldn't happen, though, neither with current Autoconf.  If so,
please report a bug.

Hmm, ok so... I should report 'present but cannot be compiled' headers to the package maintainers (i.e. kde-devel), and should investigate if the lack of an address is KDE's fault (i.e. forgot AC_INIT) or autoconf's fault?

FYI this is what I get:
configure: WARNING:     ## ------------------------------------------ ##
configure: WARNING:     ## Report this to the AC_PACKAGE_NAME lists.  ##
configure: WARNING:     ## ------------------------------------------ ##
