Just add yourself to the src group, e.g.,

sudo adduser joeblow src

Since the /usr/src/ directory has group write permission and typically
is in the src group, joeblow would now be able to configure,
etc. without having to mess with sudo.

As far as I know, however, the new group membership would not take
effect until the next login--no big deal, since it is just a one-time
thing, and other groups can be added similarly, e.g.,

for x in group1 group2 group3 ; do sudo adduser joeblow $x; done

That would add joeblow to the three groups.  Membership to all three
would be recognized at the next login.

Finally, for anyone new to this stuff, only grant group membership
very sparingly--even to yourself. ;P
