You certainly don't need to have KDevelop to build programs created with it!

KDevelop uses (as far as I am aware) autoconf/automake.  Basically, you just 
make a source distribution, which contains a file named 'configure'.  Untar 
the source, cd into the directory, and run './configure && make'.  This 
should build your program.
