What happens is that the first time you run ./configure, it puts an include 
statement at the top of all of the kappwizard perl template files telling 
that script where to find a "template-common" set of routines.

For example, at the top of kdevelop/parts/appwizard/qmakeapp/script.local:

#!perl -I/opt/kde3/addons/share/apps/kdevappwizard/template-common

That -I statement is based on how configure is called, eg: ./configure 

Once kdevelop is compiled and installed, then it looks in that directory 
whenever you attempt to make a new appwizard project so it knows where the 
common set of routine scripts are located.

So, what you should do is go to your installation directory, and you should 
see "share/apps/kdevappwizard/" and a whole bunch of template directories 
beneath it.  If you go into one, there will be a filed called "script", which 
is what Kdevelop will attempt to run when it creates a new appwizard project.  
The -I at the top of that file is probably pointing to the wrong place to 
find template-common.  If you change that to the right directory, it *should*
