For now, just add the KDevelop dependency. But I think we also want to use it 
in kdev-php and kdev-qmljs, at least. So moving it to kdevplatform might be a 
good idea. It will require some code & UI changes then as well though, to make 
it more clear for which language the paths are configured. And one should not 
be able to set defines, nor select a compiler, for these languages.
