Ok, I have discovered, that the documentation installed via deb packages goes 
into /usr/share/doc/kde/HTML/en , while the documentation installed with a 
source package goes to /usr/share/doc/HTML/en . I made a symlink and it 
started to work.

Does anyone know it there is an option during configure to make the 
documentation go into the right place?
