Thanks for the clarifications Nicolas,
I am using kde4-kile @2.1.2_0

In these days I went a bit around in the installed kile files and I already had a look at what you pointed out.
Actually I first tried to manually change the kilestdtools.rc putting the correct path but this wasn't of any help.
I finally realize that in Preferences->Tools->Build are set all the path that kile will use when compiling (e.g. /opt/local/bin/pdflatex).
I set all these path like: /usr/local/texlive/2012/bin/x86_64-darwin/pdflatex
But it still do not find classicthesis-preamble.sty. Actually I cannot find it too!

Now I uninstall and re-install kile and I checked it: 


It seems pointing at the correct files. But when trying to use the classic thesis environment it still do not find classicthesis-preamble.sty.
I downloaded the classicthesis.zip but that file wasn't there.. Is there a link to directly download the missing file?

In the case kile points to this external installation (which can be checked in the menu Settings->System Check... ), it would mean that it is not a standard installation.

The path to the tex install could be changed in there. However, a manual change in this file may be overwritten by an upgrade of the port when it occurs.

It wasn't able to find any of the koma-script files. But those files were present as I see them in /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-dist/tex/latex/koma-script/ . Since I couldn't find any solution I decided to update from TexLive2011 to TexLive2012. I followed the simple instruction indicated here:  http://tug.org/mactex/ . Installation successful but the .profile file was not updated, it still pointed to the old version of TexLive2011. The same for all the binaries in /opt/local/bin/ . I also removed the 2011 version but still they use the old version.
