Problems installing KDevelop from sources

Hi Milan!

I tried the following:

install/lib64% echo $KDEDIRS
/users/koeh_cl/Software/kdevelop/release/install:/usr:/etc
install/lib64% kbuildsycoca4
kbuildsycoca4 running...
kbuildsycoca4(5216) parseLayoutNode: The menu spec file contains a 
Layout or DefaultLayout tag without the mandatory Merge tag inside. 
Please fix your file.
install/lib64% ktraderclient --servicetype KDevelop/Plugin
servicetype is : KDevelop/Plugin
ktraderclient(5218)/kdecore (trader) KServiceTypeTrader::defaultOffers: 
KServiceTypeTrader: serviceType  "KDevelop/Plugin"  not found
got 0 offers.

As you can see, the plugins are not found.

I then tried to install into /usr instead of a cutom user directory, and 
that worked fine. So the problem is solved as far as I am concerned, 
except that I cannot install release and debug versions in parallel, but 
that should be fine for now.

Regards
Claas
