Weird kdevelop problems

Hi All,

I am having a very strange set of problems with kdevelop. Until the middle of
last week I was using kdevelop 1.1 with no problems, (great program by the
way). Then, when I came to make the project I got a message in the output
window saying,

CXX FLAGS=":CXXFLAGS=":NO such file or directory 
*** failed ***

I also get this message if I try to use the configure option from within
kdevelop. When I try to create a new project of any type I get the following in
the error window of kappwizard,

perl: No such file or directory.
perl: No such file or directory.

And it stops there. Also, if I click on rebuild all, I get the following errors

gmake: /usr/bin/gmake: cannot execute binary file
*** failed ***
gmake: /usr/bin/gmake: cannot execute binary file
*** failed ***

Now for the weird bit - we still have an old kdevelop 1.0 installed elsewhere
on the system and this still works fine. I have tried blowing away all of my
kde installation and ~/.kde and reinstalling but I still get these errors. I
have also tried installing a kdevelop 1.2 daily snapshot with the same results.

I can still configure and make the projects that I have from the command line
or kdevelop 1.0.

Does anybody have any ideas what is going on and how to fix it?

Any help greatly appreciated,

Everytime I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff
out of my head. Like that time I took the wine making
course and I forgot how to drive.
