I would recommend to run QGIS from the build directory - like that you
will not have to do 'make install' after each compilation and it also
does not require you to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH (the paths are handled
internally with rpath). You just need to run this from root source
directory: ./build-ma/output/bin/qgis
