That's a problem with one of the dependencies of KDevelop: 
libcvsservice, which explicitly depends on GNU CVS. The maintainer of 
the Debian package promised me to change that and as for as I can see, 
it has changed on Debian unstable, but I don't know how long it takes 
until this goes to Ubuntu...
