This is just a guess: You set KDEDIRS in .bashrc (or whatever your shell
uses) and that's the problem. Normally those don't get executed when
logging in, only of you include them from your .bash_profile (or
.profile or whatever your shell uses). But this can still be not enough,
as far as I know kdm until kde3.4.0 did not start a login-shell when
starting the session, thus neither .bash_profile nor .bashrc are read,
so KDEDIRS are empty when starting KDE (where kbuildsycoca is run). 

As I don't know SuSE that much, the only hint I can give is: create a
file .xsession in your home and put

export KDEDIRS=...

In there. I hope SuSE cares about a .xsession in the home...
