It works the same way, get kdelibs-dev package from KDE3 and build
kdevelop3 into a directory in your home. Then when you want to start it
make sure to set KDEDIRS to point to that directory and KDEHOME to
something else than the .kde-dir used by your KDE4 installation. Now run
kbuildsycoca (no 4 in that name) and then start kdevelop.


Tomorrow, you can be anywhere.
