WOW... compliments you are really an advanced user of KDevelop...
if you already tried to search ways like these... :-)

Unfortunately I also didn't find a trick w/o patching KDevelop
to get an automatic result like...
AC_OUTPUT(README AUTHORS ......)

Some days ago I did a patch to allow custom Makefile.am's (was intended
for shared lib support), maybe this helps a little bit...
I know it isn't a clean solution, but here it is:

Your README.in needs only the comment line:
----
# kdevelop-pragma: custom
----

This prevents KDevelop to patch the README.in with
####### kdevelop will overwrite this part!!! (begin)########## ... etc.
