Description of problem:
Compiling kdevelop source by Intel C/C++ compiler I've received such error

kwdialog.h(29): error: identifier "QComboBox" is undefined
      QComboBox *search;

kwdialog.h(30): error: identifier "QComboBox" is undefined
      QComboBox *replace;

compilation aborted for kwview.cpp (code 2)

Problem here is that "-ansi -pedantic" comand-line options cause strict ANSI 
C++ checking. According to ANSI C++, code in kwdialog.h is illegal, because 
class QComboBox isn't declared evidently in included Qt headers (you forgot 
<qcombobox.h>) and declared only in class QListBoxItem (qlistbox.h) as friend 
class - you can ensure in it looking preprocessed file. This is enough for C++ 
without ANSI check but no enough for strict ANSI dialect. Look at section 11.4 
paragraph 2 of the C++ standart: "A class shall not be defined in a friend 
declaration.", also paragraph 7: "A name nominated by a friend declaration 
shall be accessible in the scope of the class containing the friend 
GNU C/C++ compiler doesn't do really STRICT ANSI check so illegal code passes 
thru it successfully. But to increase Red Hat Linux portability you should 
correct code in <kwdialog.h> conforming ANSI C++ standart. Workaround here is 
add #include <qcombobox.h> to list of kwdialog.h includes. I'll attach the 
patch with this modification - please look at it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. I'm afraid you won't be able to reproduce the error because you don't have 
compiler I used and this error doesn't appear with current GNU C/C++ compiler.

Actual Results:  Compilation error.

Expected Results:  Biult package.
