[Buildroot] Removing Qt/E

   Let me first explain the history of this package to those who don't
follow Qt development: Qt/E was the original name of Qtopia Core (the
library, not the shell). Recently, Trolltech/Nokia has renamed Qtopia Core
to Qt for Embedded Linux.

   Is there anyone who still uses Qt/E? Qt Embedded (original), like Qt 2.x
is very, very old. If there are no users of this package, I would propose
removing it and possibly renaming qtopia to Qt Embedded.

   The current Qtopia we have is 4.4.0, which was prior to this 4.3 and I
imagine that at some point it might have been 3.3. All of those versions are
not 100% source code compatible with one another, in speciall the 3.x to 4.x
jump. Since support for newer versions have already been dropped in the
past, I don't see why keep this much older one.

Kind Regards,
