It works MUCH better if you replace
mv apidocs <whereever>
make apidox-install

After doing the kdelibs API doc install you need to reconfigure kdevelop.

After making kdevelop API documentation you'll get a warning about 
having to install it.
Do not ignore this warning.
Install it.

(you do not need to be root if you install it to some place you have 
permissions to)
The same applies to kdelibs API dox

I've wasted enough time fixing Makefile.am and Doxygen.am. All you have 
to do is follow the instructions.
If you want to do it differently then send in a patch, I'll review it.

Have fun,
