AFAIK: Yes, at least it works here for me with kde4 :) But Aleix should
know for sure.

Ooooh, I'm not sure thats a good idea. Doesn't KDevelop3 work good
enough for you? OTOH more people fixing the little annoyances, or even
just complaining about them might make it basically usable in shorter
time :)

That smells like a bug, it does understand the similar line in KDevelops


There are two things differing:
a) you're using the <project>_SOURCE_DIR variable, dunno if that is
b) quotes, dunno either if the cmake parser does the right things with
these, though I'd suspect rather a) being the problem than b)

Have a backtrace?


Don't go surfing in South Dakota for a while.
