looks like I always focus on the wrong packages to be fixed... According
to https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/KDE:Qt

  Note that Qt 4 support ended in 2015 and these packages should not be used anymore.

While that they should not be used anymore is clear, I did not know that
they can be excluded via api somehow.

Anyway, I'll disable building the package now, but leave already built
packages available for other packages that probably "should not be used
anymore" ...
