kfunk added a comment.

  Just some general remarks: Storing the application's install prefix inside the binary itself almost always smells like bad design. Thus the concerns here. You rather want to do this dependent on the kdevelop binary's application path (cf. http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qcoreapplication.html#applicationDirPath)
  Easily explained with: On Windows this will just fail (as the install prefix can be anything, as the *user* chooses where KDevelop will end up during installation).
