Something seems wrong with your CMake version.

You are not trying to something fancy, such as cross-compiling KDevelop, using 
a CMake toolchain file?

Looks like CMake fails to detect your current toolchain (GCC) correctly, 
please investigate. 

Just tested building kdev-executebrowser with CMake 3.12.1/GCC 8.2.0 here on 
Ubuntu 18.10 => works fine.
