You are confusing two things here. KDev-Clang has nothing to do with compiling 
stuff. KDev-Clang is using the clang *libraries* to do static code analysis. 
These are two things. The clang compiler also uses these libraries internal to 
compile code.

What you need is an LLVM SDK, not an OS X SDK. The former gives your 
LLVM/Clang libraries, the latter gives your OS X libraries etc. pp. and a 
compiler - clang.
