Compiling kdevelop - undefined reference to .... problems

I am trying to compile kdevelop 3.0.2.  I have followed the instructions on 
the compiling page ( 
and all was going well until:

Making all in qextmdi
make[3]: Entering directory `/tmp/kdevelop-3.0.2/lib/qextmdi'

At this point I started getting "undefined reference to" error messages, 
the first one being:

.libs/kmdichildarea.o(.text+0x41):kmdichildarea.cpp: undefined reference to 
`QFrame::QFrame[not-in-charge](QWidget*, char const*, unsigned)'

Until now I had simply been running "make" but remembering the compile 
page, I restarted compilation using:

make LIBS="-lkdecore -ldcop -lqt-mt -lXext -lX11 -lICE -lSM"

which died in the same directory (/tmp/kdevelop-3.0.2/lib/qextmdi) but 
getting a little further to failing on:

.libs/kmdimainfrm.o(.text+0xe6e):kmdimainfrm.cpp: undefined reference to 

I assume this means I'm missing some libs in my make/compilation 
statement.  I tried adding -lqui (found at the same level as libqt-mt) but 
this did not help.

Any advice?  Am I missing some libs?
