Angry Problem on ./configure (FC5)

Hey, I want to compile a nifty li'l app I found called Ksmoothdock but I can't since I get the following error message when executing ./configure, this happens a lot when I try to compile stuff.

Please help, I'm almost a nerve wreck because of this:

checking whether uic supports -L ... yes
checking whether uic supports -nounload ... yes
checking if Qt needs -ljpeg... no
checking for rpath... yes
checking for KDE... configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!"

Usually, failed dependencies are a result of a missing -devel package on binary distros. In this example, kde-devel (or something along those lines) is the missing package.
