Oh that one. The problem is libtool related. Libtool is a great tool,
but inter-library depencies and C++ libraries cause much trouble. And
ecasound has both. libecasound is linked to libkvutils, while ecasound,
qtecasound and ecatools are linked to both of them. I've tried many
combinations and the only working one was to install kvutils before
compiling other parts of ecasound package (forced 'make install'
solved this). Of course the easiest solution would have been to
distribute a separate kvutils package, but I don't think people want
to download n+1 different packages.
Today I managed to get 1.6.10d10 to compile without forced 'make install'.
I'll release it later today. Everything looks to work ok now. It's quite
a autoconf/automake/libtool mess, but at least it works.
