If you set KDEDIRS yourself you need to include KDEDIR too (which should
point to the Directory that kde-config --prefix reports).

Ok, and the other kdevelop was a Distribution supplied one right? That
could be the problem, because it resides in $KDEDIR and thus the
self-installed kdevelop and the system-installed interfere. You have to
deinstall the system version if you want to use the self compiled...

I had similar problems when switching from Debian-supplied kdevelop3 to
self compiled. At the end I deinstalled kdevelop3 completely and am
happy with it..


You'll feel much better once you've given up hope.
