You didn't say what the failure was, but I may have had the same problem. My 
issue turned out to be that the latest KDE2 beta4 (and later) is NOT source 
compatible with older versions. The result is the template created by the 
wizard is not correct. I am playing around trying to modify it myself while I 
wait for an upgrade - seemed like a good chance to learn a bit about how 
kdevelop works.
