I did this to get  KDevelop working with the msp430-gdb:

In Project-Options->Debugger:

Path to gdb: '/home/mandl/bin' 
       I placed a symlink named 'gdb' pointing to 
'/usr/local/msp430/bin/msp430-gdb'  in this directory
Run gdb script: '/home/mandl/.gdbinit'
       I put the appropriate settings for 'msp430-gdb' to connect with 
the 'msp430-gdbproxy' in this file

I  still have to invoke msp430-gdbproxy manually in a terminal-shell. 
This could probably also be done with 'run shell script' but  I  have 
not tried this yet, since I was more than happy to have it working in 
the first place.

Works like magic :-)
