[Qgis-developer] Run stable and master versions of QGIS on Ubuntu

AFAIK, you have to build your own version (preferrably master) with a
different install prefix (e.g. /home/softdev/), and when you want to use
that version you need to add relevant paths to PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

I have a shell function that sets this up on demand:

export SOFT_PREFIX=/home/softdev
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/home/softdev/lib"
export LIBRARY_PATH=/home/softdev/lib
export LD_RUN_PATH=/home/softdev/lib
export PATH=/home/softdev/bin:$PATH
export CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH=/home/softdev/include
export C_INCLUDE_PATH=/home/softdev/include
export CPPFLAGS=-I/home/softdev/include
export PYTHONPATH=/home/softdev/lib/python2.7/site-packages/
export GDAL_DATA=/home/softdev/share/gdal
export -f setup_softdev
