I guess easiest is to rm -r include/interfaces/ktexteditor and then
re-create it as symlink pointing to kate-git's ktexteditor directory. And
you'd also might want to remove the katepart.so in lib/kde4 so the one in
kate-git installation is used. And don't forget to add the kate-git install
prefix to KDEDIRS.

Problem is that there's no way to depend on a specific kte version (afaik),
other than kdelibs version.


Try to relax and enjoy the crisis.
