I made a /etc/X11/Xsession.d/95kde-environment file containing:
export KDEDIRS=/usr:/usr/local/kde

If you don't want it global, it should be possible to add it to 
$HOME/.xsession, but I haven't tried this. Don't forget to add 
/usr/local/kde/bin to your $PATH.

btw, if you want kdm to source your .bash_profile when logging in, add --login 
after #!/bin/sh in /usr/bin/startkde
