At the moment, all packages which need qmake4 need to depend on
libqt4-dev. That fetches a really long list of other libs in, which
sometimes (as in my case descibed above) aren't needed for the
compilation of the package.
So I would split all /usr/bin/ and /usr/share/qt4/mkspecs/ into an own
package and let libqt4-dev depend on it. So no packages depending on
libqt4-dev will fail, and maintainers have the choise to depend on
qmake only.
