share library bug and advise

Hi ,

I am struggling to initiate my project since 1 week now, and I don't 
have any answer at all from the kdevelop community to the questions I 
Sadly, It looks like nobody is working with kdevelop which I sure is not 
true , I hope the Kdevelop project is not dead.

Here is my problem

I try to create a share library for python in C++, I could easily link 
with python's library (-I/usr/include/python2.2) in kevelop 2.1 , but I 
had too many trouble to create a share library the way I wanted and also 
because compiling/linking give a bunch or errors in the redhat 9.0.

Gideon where supposed to have a better support for the creation of a 
share library, unfortunately I could not find  out how to link my source 
to python.

Here I have done so far:

***first attempt*****
I create a directory with two files mordorpy.cpp ( C++ share library 
which is a module of python) and a Makefile which is the following:
SHARED_LIB_OPTIONS = -shared mordorpy.cpp
g++ $(SHARED_LIB_OPTIONS) -o -I/usr/include/python2.2 \
I open Gideon and did "project" -> "import existing project" (generic 
C++ application (automake base))
 From that point,  I was able to create my library ( by 
doing "build" ->"build target". But the strange thing is that I don't 
see anything about mordorpy.cpp file in the "class brother window" which 
means I can't modified it !

****second attempt*****
Instead of choosing "generic C++ application (automake base)" I choose 
"Generic C++ Application with custom Makefile".
NOW I can't see mordorpy.cpp with "the class brother window" and can add 
feature/modify this file. I can't also compile it using "build" -> 
"build target".

THE PROBLEM now is that Gideon do not upgrade (or build) the Makefile 
when adding a new class to the project.

***third attempt****
As read in the kdevelop's forum and in order to generate automatically a 
makefile, I wanted to create a small c++ "hello word" using Gideon, 
create a directory and import mordorpy.cpp file as a share library.

Unfortunately I could make it with "project" -> "create new project" -> 
"C++" -> "simple hello word program".
the error message is the following:

Can't locate in @INC (@INC contains:

* BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at 
/usr/local/kde/share/apps/kdevappwizard/template-cpphello/script line 3.
* *** Exited with status: 2 ***

My question is how I can build a share library in kdevelop 2.1 or even 
better in 3.alpha so I can compile/debug/etc in Kevelop.

Please try to be explicit since I have no experience at all using any of
