The instructions say: "WARNING: You have to remove all 
KDevelop/KDevplatform/Sublime packages provided by your distribution." Any 
tinkering with official distro files makes your suggestion a non-starter 
here, I'm afraid. I've been in dependency hell too often to ever again want 
to try circumventing the distro packaging system for support libraries.

There are several PPA repositories that would presumably manage all the 
dependencies correctly; I just don't know which is the best one to use 
(i.e., the one most likely to be kept up-to-date with changes in kdevelop).
