Here in KDE SIG land, our solution looks like this:
# omit gigantic oxygen scalable/svg icons, for now -- Rex
find %{buildroot}%{_kde4_iconsdir}/oxygen/scalable -name "*.svgz" | \
xargs --no-run-if-empty rm -fv 

(Of course this will only work if there are PNG versions of the same icons, 
otherwise the PNGs have to be generated first.)
