you must have the kde libraries installed to use kdevelop. kdevelop also makes use of several kde apps, such as editors, kdiff, and probably some others. Im not sure if they are compiled in with kdevelop or if you will need them installed separately.
>> do a kde prog built using KDevelop run on gnome?
yes. as long as you have the needed kdelibs available under gnome.

kdevelop is a very nice IDE if you like IDEs. I prefer the editor kate, a terminal window, and gdb, but I did use kdevelop for a recent project. It is a robust program that if properly configured should cover just about every need you may have from development to distribution. I guess all you can do is try it.
If you are not really familiar with libs and such in linux and X I would suggest that the easy way for you to get up and going with kdevelop would be to just go ahead and install kde completly and not try to find only what you need. Then once it is installed, you will be able to launch kdevelop from within gnome.
if you use your distros package manager, it will install deps for kdevelop.
you can use kdevelop to link against gnome libs, you just have to work harder.
for working in gnome, you might find glade to be easier, gtk/gdk specific so the whole qt thing isn't added. ( kde being qt based )
