Kile installation reports kde-config not found---Please suggest

I've worked on Kile latex editor, and I wanted to install it on my computer having FC6.
The configure file reports an error:

[guest@localhost kile-1.9.3]$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/lib/kde3/ --with-qt-dir=/usr/lib/qt-3.3/
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking for -p flag to install... yes
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for kde-config... not found
configure: error: The important program kde-config was not found!
Please check whether you installed KDE correctly.

I've not installed KDE 3.3 that is kile's requirement, so please suggest how to install them now.
