See the desktop-profiles package which has the infrastructure bit for 
managing KDEDIRS (and several similar variables like XDG_CONFIG_DIRS, ...)

In order to add /usr/local to KDEDIRS for all users on your machine, just 
install desktop-profiles and add the attached metadata file 
to /etc/destktop-profiles.

As to wether setting KDEDIRS will cause problems or not, that will depend 
very much depend on what's in the directories added to KDEDIRS, most of the 
time it won't cause problems.
