They are. You have to set the path in the kdevelop setup for KDE2/qt-2
for that which basically only get append during the project creation. If
configure fails on a qt-1.x app, you can run configure with arguments
from within kdevelop where you can append --with-qt-dir=  which should
solve the problems with qt if you know where you have it.
