First of all, disclaimer: I'm not a KDE developer, I just submit patches 

As far as I understand, kauth can (does?) use different backends on 
different platforms, and polkit-qt-1 is "the" backend on Linux.

I think that it should be clear that kauth does not depend on other tier1 
libraries except for polkit-qt-1. Not sure what is the best way to do this.
