There is on such thing as a "kdevelop project". You have a project and it uses 
some build toolchain, i.e. QMake, CMake, AutoTools, plain Makefiles, ...

So what is it?

Again: No, this is not possible. What you can do is open an existing project 
and run make in it. If you want to start a new project, read up on CMake and 
use it.
