If you check out kdelibs it contains code to register image formats. So you 
would need to provide wrapper modules that register for one or more image
formats dependently if FreeImage is found by configure. This should work out
pretty well and I'm happy to help you. If you already have code to read/write
a QImage you should be pretty close to finish :)
