KDE "The KDevelop team is proud and happy to announce that KDevelop 4.0 is finally available as stable release. KDevelop comes with lots of innovative features, even though many features from the 3.5 series were dropped due to a nearly complete rewrite. In particular the developers have focused on building an excellent C++ IDE instead of trying to integrate lots of languages and features halfheartedly. Of course KDevelop 4 also builds an excellent basis for other languages, the best proof for that is the PHP plugin that is released alongside KDevelop 4.0. KDevelop 4.0 has an excellent C++ code understanding engine, which allows the IDE to understand your code better than you do, and which is then used to assist you by releasing you from tiresome tasks."

KDE dropped Autotools years ago.
KDevelop is an IDE to create KDE software.
Why should KDevelop support build environments the whole KDE community doesn't even use?
I'm sure the KDevelop maintainers happily accept patches to add support for Autotools from 3rd parties, but they likely have more important items on their TODO list for themselves.
