FWIW, I now have kde (4.7.90 aka 4.8-beta2, almost done building 4.7.95 
aka 4.8-rc1 on another desktop as of this writing) built on gentoo with
USE=-semantic-desktop, so no nepomuk, etc, at all, tho strigi remains a 
dep (of kdelibs) but it's built without a backend so is linked into 
kdelibs but doesn't do much.  kde4's /much/ nicer without the performance 
millstone that stuff was, let alone the hassle! =:^)

So I can't tell you where precisely to look, but I do remember that it 
was possible to tell nepomuk what directories (and files?) to index.  You 
can simply tell it not to index that directory and continue using it, if 
you like.  IIRC there was a kcontrol module for it in kde settings, and 
it was also possible to get to the same config dialog thru the nepomuk 
tray icon.  But however one gets to the config, it's certainly possible 
to turn off indexing specific directories, I remember that, for sure.
