I'm using Kubuntu. I noticed that a new version 4.5 came out and I'd like to try it out. Someone created some directions at http://userbase.kde.org/KDevelop/Install4.5 but Kubuntu is not included. I'd rather not install a new distro. I tried to install from source. The person who created that userbase page actually suggested http://techbase.kde.org/Getting_Started/Build but as you might imagine it's not very helpful for a newbie. I went ahead and added a link to http://techbase.kde.org/Projects/KDevelop4/HowToCompile instead. However, I can't figure out how to compile it using these directions. I suspect that maybe I don't have the requirements (http://techbase.kde.org/KDevelop4/requirements) but the explanation on how to find these requirements is sparse and the requirements page is untouched since 2011. I tried the suggested "[program name] --version" but it doesn't generally work. Here are my comments on the requirements:

Since 4.5 we also depend on Grantlee, I updated the wiki page. Sorry!
There should be a package in your distribution called like grantlee-dev or so, install that and you should be fine.
This is what cmake messages like this one always mean: Search your package manager for a package called like what it mentions, and install that.
In general don't worry too much about versions or dependencies or anything by yourself, just run cmake and see what it says. It'll tell you if anything is missing.
I'm working on python language support for KDevelop.

In regards to a few dependencies you mentioned:
This is the correct package. It is named kdelibs5-dev for historical reasons in Debian derivates. KDE 3 was known as "kdelibs4-dev" for instance.
That is the right package, yes.
I would suggest looking for libboost-multiindex or similar here.
