Including the path to the source directory in LD_LIBRARY_PATH
should help. It's not particularly elegant, of course. 

Anyway, the kwrite_part sources are _very_ old. You better make
any changes directly to the sources in kdebase. The kwrite stuff
in kdevelop is only for prototyping some functionality without
being affected by features freezes in kdebase etc.
