Problems installing kdevelop on debian


I have problems installing the program kdevelop on debian sarge. I want an updated package, so i want on the net and downloaded a source package. When i try to configure this i get these error messages:

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!

..what can i do to fix this and how will i be able to install kdevelop on debian. It says i have to use another prefix, but how do i use another prefix and i dont know where the KDE headers are installed either. I feel like a rookie, but im really not. Just installing kdevelop is plain hard it seems like.

Could someone help me out here, that would be really nice. Saying just "change your prefix using configure -h" will not help me.

I was actually looking for trying to install it myself and then the new version which was rewritten from scratch. I have tried "apt-get install kdevelop3" and it works fine, but shouldnt it be possible to build it from source when i can build it with apt-get?
