Since XFree86 4.4.0 isn't in Debian, you must have installed it from
a tarball or something.  You'll need to point the KDE configure

Debian packaged X headers.
The /usr/X11R6 install path is standard, so the configure must find the dir....
Um, you installed a binary tarball of X to /usr/X11R6?  That's a
*really* bad idea.  Nonetheless, Debian has the X headers packaged.  Or
get them from XFree86.

If nothing gets resolved about that 4.4 release in the future, I am
considering installing 4.4 in my system too, so, I would like to hear
recommendations about making it happen.

Red Hat and others are packaging their kit from x.org. I expect that will be better-supported, at least in the short term: there are quite a few Red Hatters around.
