$HOME is /home/your-username. $KDEDIR is defined this way:

1 GB is very probably not enough for this build. You can change it to whatever
you want. /opt is a good choice. I prefer my home, because I'm pretty sure
that I don't need any su/sudo. This can save a little bit of time,
because "make install" first compiles and later installs, but "make"
and "sudo make install" does the same, but Makefiles have to be parsed twice.

Unfortunately, it seems so. If it were just an application, tends to be pretty
easy, because you can install the "-dev" ending packages of kdelibs,
kdepimlibs, etc., and you save a lot of compiling.
