You'll probably get whatever syntax highlighting is available via the Kate editor component. That is also what I get in my projects that contain Tcl files.
It'd be nice if the outline navigator had some form of support for configuration files. Apple's Xcode has (or used to have) that: you could describe what function/procedure definitions look like so that the outline navigator could present a list of the functions/procedures available in a file. The BBEdit/TextWrangler editors have a similar feature but even if its implementation is open-source it still doesn't seem easy to extend KDevelop's outline navigator widget.
