If you start kdevelop without project, then load a project, let it parse
and close the project (not kdevelop) there should be a file called
<project>.kdevelop.pcs in the project directory. Of course if KDevelop
crashes before that it won't create the file.

The PCS files in your $HOME/.kde are from the class stores you created
under Project Options->C++.

Good, that rules out one failure point.

I might be mistaken, but kdevelop3 is not the package name. Its just
"kdevelop". Of course I could be wrong here, I'm not using a rpm-based
