I think you're being overly cautious there, esp. if you have no issues running the distro-provided KDevelop version other than it being too old. If your system is already set up for building you just use the toolchain you're used to, and just install the -dev packages of the dependencies your distro-KDevelop would use... (You can uninstall them again afterwards if you want to run a clean ship.)

FWIW, the AppImage is bound to use your system's libc, plus a healthy bunch of other libraries. I don't see why building it yourself would put those libraries at risk - you certainly wouldn't need to update them.
