Not from source.  The nightly builds use the GDAL version from the "original"

My main point of the nighly builds is to test if trunk is building against the
various library versions - having usable trunk builds is just a side effect ;)

So if you need ECW support, you need to add it to that version.  The version
from ubuntugis is probably a different one and therefore not used by nightly
build.  And in turn having ECW support for that one, doesn't help.

You need to build the GDAL ECW plugin for the "original" GDAL version.  The
tuturial can help with that.  And once you added it, QGIS (including coming
nighly builds) will be able to use ECW.
