Why not create a separate KDevelop library project for your lib like I
suggested earlier? That way you can still develop/debug/whatever your
library code in KDevelop. If you add the correct files as INSTALL
targets (right click on them) you can also automate the installation of
your lib into a separate dir if you like (just do a 'make install' for
your library project in a shell).
