I guess then renaming the binaries is the only alternative for qt 2. 

The only thing that would heavily simplify matters here is to have 
qt2-embedded and qt3-embedded be structured in the same way that qt2 and qt3 
are, so much that one can install the qt2-dev-tools or qt3-dev-tools which 
are provided by the x11 version and which work for the embedded versions as 
well (or package those up, too but leave the choice to use 

qt2e-dev-tools | qt2-dev-tools resp. qt3e-dev-tools | qt3-dev-tools

This way, only the qt2 binaries need to be renamed.
