Sorry, it seems it was a late failure from running the build under
tcsh and/or using
BSD make. Re-running it using bash and gmake worked.

I've noticed that running ~/kdevelop4/bin/kdevelop doesn't work: kdevelop runs
for a second then quits, with no error message. truss shows that it does a call
to stat("."), then calls __getcwd followed immediately by various stat/lstat
calls working its way through $PATH; it doesn't appear to be trying to
find kdevelop.bin
in the final path component where it's being run. Renaming kdevelop.bin and
running kdevelop from the bin directory has the same effect.
