The current way to get kdesrc-build to skip a module is to mark it as inactive 
in the projects.kde.org interface for that module. This may have an effect on 
other XML-using tools but if it's deemed necessary to have a flag that says 
"don't build" then kdesrc-build will of course be updated to support that.

The workaround if that is not feasible is to simply list the modules under 
kdevelop/ that should be built in the use-modules for that module-set. E.g.

module-set kdev
  repository kde-projects
  use-modules kdevelop/kdevplatform kdevelop/kdevelop
end module-set

Obviously make sure all needed modules are listed, but that method should 
always work.
