[aur-general] Absence of kdelibs3

I'm testing the building for various packages. This is a partial list of
packages that should be deleted. I didn't include any packages that are
maintained by trusted users.
Kicker was a part of the KDE 3 desktop, but is not present in any KDE 4.
All packages that use Kicker are therefore useless.
These packages will never compile unless development magically springs to
life upstream (it won't).
Only works with an old version of k3b
Needs modification to the upstream source to work
