I've seen my Qt users use -developer-build because


proposes it and the impact not clear to everyone. Qt users naturally 
consider themselves to be developers :)

The negative impact I have seen: the lack of a following "make install" 
leads to a different layout of the files on disk. Still, companies are 
sharing such builds within their team and develop their application 
against it.

If noone minds I'll make the wording more precise.
