You certainly did.  I am amazed such a complex app can be ported.

AFAICT it is system-wide in Linux KDE, though I am not up to speed on KDevelop.  Maybe there
are some things you can change, under a Configure menu-item, just within the KDevelop windows.

On my Macbook, KDE apps are built with qt4-mac by Macports and that means the window/desktop
style is the same as is set in Mac OS X.  I do not know what will happen if you try to run the KDE app
called "systemsettings", always supposing it has been ported.  Might be a recipe for disaster …
