There is still no proper tutorial/documentation on how to do it. But there are 
language plugins for quite some languages already, look at e.g.

you'll need to look at the following interfaces in KDevplatform: 
LanguageSupport, ParseJob, Abstract*Builder

bison/flex files or similar.

Generally, please direct such questions to kdevelop-devel at kdevelop.org (please
