This can be solved by using `kdevelop --ps` to launch KDevelop, or
 `kdevelop -s some_existing_session`.

I'm not familiar with the build problem, but some comments on what you posted:

 * The usual build process is something like `cd build/ && cmake .. && make`. 
Running  CMake directly in the source directory is probably not advisable.

 * You might want to try `cmake -GNinja ..  && ninja` - it's quicker than Make 
and seems more reliable.

 * Using ccache can reduce the cost of repeated clean builds, at the cost of 
occasional strange issues.
