are you trying to compile from sources?
i have seen this before and i'm sure it's about the way we are exporting headers/devel stuff to the devel module as reinstalling kdelibs solves this issue.

you can try two things:
a) boot to 'Always Fresh' and install kdelibs package from alien repo (it can break your desktop so Always Fresh is a must):
http://alien.slackbook.org/ktown/current/4.12.4/
then try to compile from sources again.

b) use precompiled kdiff3 from slackel repo:

Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
