You need the development headers of DjVulibre for the DjVu support of
Okular. Ligature has a copy of DjVulibre in its codebase, because the
external API of DjVulibre is very limited and also in C while the actual
code is C++.

When we added DjVu support about 18 months ago, the external API of
DjVulibre didn't even supported access to the textinformation, so using it
was not an option.

A long time goal of mine was to get a high level Qt binding directly into
DjVulibre (just like poppler has a Qt binding), but I just didn't found the
time for this yet.
