I thought a little about it while finishing my tutorial ;-) 
How about this: make a combo box in the KDevelop setup dialog to
configure this:

On Execute: <combo>always rebuild || rebuild changes || only execute ||
ask for rebuild

That would make it best, I guess. The former solution (always call make
before execute) worked best for me. sometimes a while to wait, but most
often you changed something here and there, then you hit execute to test
your changes. That requires a make anyway and as it was, it was the
fastest way to do it. I would be content with making it optional in a
combo like this because it would follow the rule: make everything
optional and would allow to have all options available.
