Version: git master (using Devel)
I built KDevelop on top of a completely built-from-source KDE (kdelibs, kde-workspace, kdevplatform). The configuration and build process for KDevelop finished successfully. However, when I executed KDevelop, I saw the splash screen but got a message box that said "Error: could not find KTextEditor ::Factory". I solved this problem by building Kate. I believe there should be a check+error in the KDevelop CMake if Kate is not found.
Reproducible: Didn't try

A compile-time check for a runtime-dependency makes no sense. I've improved the error message but there is nothing else to do here.
