No, the font in the build windows is currently hardcoded to use the system's 
fixed font (QFontDatabase::systemFont(QFontDatabase::FixedFont), which is 
queried from the platform thene integration plugin.
Which might be something based on QGenericUnixTheme, which sets a QFont 
initialized with the family "monospace" (& setStyleHint(QFont::TypeWriter);).


Not sure if that theme is really in use, but it might be. Also unsure how the 
resolution then happens, if that string is passed 1:1 to fontconfig.

Can you tell what the result of "fc-match monospace" is on the normal 
commandline and what in the embedded shell/konsole of KDevelop?
