wow... never seen such an error...
but I guess there is something going wrong on the environment variables
on that user account.

try to start "perl --version" from this user account on your machine.
The error "perl: No such file or directory." normally means there is no
And also the error of /usr/bin/gmake is really strange.

gmake and perl are inside /usr/bin, so either the PATH env. or the
rights to /usr/bin
(or even the rights to start these binaries) aren't quite right for the
user which starts kdevelop.

This is only an assumption, maybe it helps...
