I don't think so, 1.1 is by far the most stable and feature-full release ever.

This is NOT a problem of KDevelop but of your installation (as the text says).
There are several reasons for this:
a) You didn't export the QTDIR variable to the right Qt path
(you will also need a correct KDEDIR later in the ./configure process)
b) You didn't add the $(QTDIR)/lib to your /etc/ (and running
ldconfig after it) or to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH (you will need $(KDEDIR)/lib
later on, too)
c) You didn't install the Qt includes (should be package qt-devel or similar)
(and maybe qt-compat)
d) You overwrote the 1.4 libs with your 2.0 libs, I guess you should totally
uninstall qt-2.0 if you don't need it, because it will surely conflict with
other software as well if you don't know how to setup it in the right way.

You didn't work with it, you didn't even get it to compile - so "working with
kdevelop" can't be "frustrating" yet;  q.e.d.

PS: Please rethink your writing style ('mistake', 'frustrating' ect. in this
usage are no words which make it easy to others to try to help you!!)
