thanks for the suggestions. QT4 is compiling right now (and probably for the 
next 2 hours :-)

Here the umask command may help. You can set the new file creation mask to 
something that your other developer user can read+write, so for simplicity, 
you could use umask in your bashrc as:

umask g=rwx

and thus all your files created (e.g. by KDevelop) will get a rw flag for the 
users group, which the kde4 user belongs to as well.
