Pop up an error message and abort execution, as it expects it to be
part of kdelibs.
Which is coincidentally very similar to what KTextEditor tutorials
suggest --- see
(except it needs katepart in specific)

So, as far as I am concerned, this is an incompatible change. (Moving
to kdebase-runtime would be fine, of course).
