I installed libkde4-dev and it seems to have installed all the required headers and libs.

Which repository do you use for KDE 3.5? The Kubuntu packages for KDE 3.5 (http://kubuntu.org/announcements/kde-35.php)? Looking at this repo (http://kubuntu.org/packages/kde35/pool-breezy/) shows that it contains all those *-dev files which you need.

Oops: Saw your last message too late.
If you don't know what packages to install, the headers are all distributed in those -dev files, for example libkde4-dev contains all headers for the kdelibs. kdebase-dev contains the headers of kdebase and so on. A nice way to install -dev packages is via command line with something like

$ apt-get build-dep kdepim
That command would install all packages which you need to build kdepim from source. Of course this only works for packages which are already in the repository.
