Then please include a short summary on what needs to be done to use
distcc for a given project. I personally have no idea how either of
these two works, but I do know my way through kdev's build support

That depends on what needs to be done. If you only need to call make
with special environment variables or command line switches, you can
provide a menu-entry, an according slot in the existing build-system of
your choice (or all).

If you need more, I need more information on what needs to be done to
use distcc or icecream.
