Actually, I'm sure that it doesn't exist below /usr/share/doc/HTML.
AFAIKT, kdevelop never adds it's dir structure there.  I've tried to add
it manually, but the added dirs get removed when I attempt to finish

This would explain why the manually added dirs vanish.

I've just tried replacing libqt1g with qt1g and qt1g-dev, and building the
original source tarball.  This fails in the configure stage, not being able
to recognize the qt1g libraries and includes:

	checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= 1.42 and < 2.0) (headers
	and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!

dpkg -s qt1g-dev:

	Status: install ok installed
	Version: 1:1.44-6.1

Has anyone succesfully installed/compiled kdevelop on a current potato box?
