Please, excuse my stupidity... It is not my area at all...
I made the following script:

export KDEDIRS=~/kdevelop-3.5.5:$KDEDIRS
export KDEHOME=~/kdevelop-3.5.5
kdevelop &
And when I run it, I receive:

Warning: kbuildsycoca is unable to register with DCOP.
kbuildsycoca running...
kbuildsycoca running...
Reusing existing ksycoca
And kdevelop starts with the error message:

Unable to find plugins, KDevelop will not work properly.
Please make sure that KDevelop is installed in your KDE directory; otherwise, 
you have to add KDevelop's installation path to the environment variable 
KDEDIRS and run kbuildsycoca. Restart KDevelop afterwards.
Example for BASH users:
export KDEDIRS=/path/to/kdevelop:$KDEDIRS && kbuildsycoca
Please, help!
