.so files are picked up already correctly.
So it's just the includes:
rm -r /usr/include/KDE/KTextEditor
ln -s /home/niko/kdesvn/kdevelop/kate/includes/KTextEditor
rm -r /usr/include/ktexteditor
ln -s /home/niko/kde/include/ktexteditor /usr/include/ktexteditor
rm -r /usr/include/ktexteditor_codesnippets_core
ln -s /home/niko/kde/include/ktexteditor_codesnippets_core

what about adding a KTE version (to git only) - that way kdevelop could depend
on KDE 4.5 _or_ KDE 4.4 + KTE x.x?
