the .desktop file (as all other services files for KDE)
are installed in the KDE_SERVICESDIR, which is set
by --with-kde-pluginprefix (add /share/services)
OR wherever kde-config suggests:
kde-config --install services --expandvars

You can override the above using --with-kde-servicesdir

KDEDIRS is never used automatically

Is this with cvs HEAD or 0.8.1 ?

make install assumes klash_part.desktop should be installed to /usr, despite the --prefix option of configure being /usr/local and $KDEDIRS being /usr/local .

gmake[4]: Entering directory `/home/notroot/.sourceinstall/build/gnash/plugin/klash'
gmake[4]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'.
test -d /usr/share/services || /bin/sh ../../mkinstalldirs /usr/share/services
/usr/bin/install -c ./klash_part.desktop /usr/share/services
/usr/bin/install: cannot create regular file `/usr/share/services/klash_part.desktop': Permission denied
