I'm not sure if I like implicit behaviour. Maybe, the toolbar (currently
underused), should have a combobox that used to select what to build?

In fact, I'm thinking about right debugger configuration, and thinking
about adding a combo to select the current debugger configuration. This
mean that the toolbar might have two comboboxes:

1. What to build.
2. What to run/debug/valgrind/etc

Which seems like a fairly clear approach to me.
