KStars just recently decided to stop distributing our own copy of the 
cfitsio library.  Like the eigen dependency in Kalzium, cfitsio isn't a 
requirement; if the user doesn't have cfitsio, the FITS-related features 
in KStars will simply not be compiled.

cfitsio home: http://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/software/fitsio/fitsio.html
Minimum version:  3.0?  Maybe Jasem can provide the real number...
