You don't have the development packages installed, which have the

apt-get install kdelibs-dev

You should also have libqt2-dev installed too, if you don't have it
already.  You might need some other foo-dev packages, too, depending on
what your app requires.  Generally, if the app requires package
"libfoo", you'll need to have "libfoo-dev" (although check the Debian
package list (unstable) for the exact name, the correspondence is not
always 1:1).

Good luck,
