Thank you for your support!

Don't know, whether I understand you right.
What difference do you expect by your change? - Does the display of debug 
locals depend on that?

If its related to the point, that I could not build the project by QtCreator, 
than I already solved it. The point was, I confused a linker error message 
with a compiler error and wanted to add a compiler switch, where just another 
library needs to get added :O

The build works rather different, when I run cmake from QtCreator to cmake from 
commandline from the build directory. QtCreator variant is more verbose, but 
creates the same executable as cmake from commandline.
And of cause, both can be debugged by kdevelop and QtCreator. 
So I guess, debug mode is already turned on.

What I realized from the verbose QtCreator variant output:
The commandline used to compile the sources is pretty stupid.
Just: c++ -g -o ...

In netbeans I use plenty of compiler switches and enabled lots of warnings. 
May be these options are hidden with cmake (passed by environment?), but I'd 
like to know about the used compiler switches and probably like to enable 
additional warnings too. 
Netbeans shows me warnings where cmake-build says nothing.
Additionally the binary from netbeans is smaller (although compiled with debug 
mode too).

kind regards
