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.)

I tried building with cmake:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:12 (find_package):
  Could not find a configuration file for package "ECM" that is compatible
  with requested version "5.50.0".

  The following configuration files were considered but not accepted:

    /usr/share/ECM/cmake/ECMConfig.cmake, version: 5.28.0


Looks like perhaps my system packages are too old. I'm running Devuan.
So maybe something like Debian oldstable.
