Installation problems with kdevgit plugin

I would like to use the git plugin for KDevelop located at

Using the guide from
the plugin compiles and is installed, but it is not shown in KDevelop in 
Help/Loaded Plugins and it does not show up in the list of the version control 
systems in the New Project wizard.

Here is the list of commands I'm using:
git clone git://
cd kdevelop4-git/
git checkout -b 4.0 origin/4.0
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/kdevelop4-plugins ../
make install
export KDEDIRS=$HOME/kdevelop4-plugins/:/usr

I'm using an up-to-date Debian testing system with kdevplatform 4.0.0 and 
KDevelop 4.0.0 from Debian's testing repository. Using the master branch of 
the kdevelop4-git repository leads to compile errors.

Do you have any idea what I'm doing wrong?
