This can be done a few ways using qmake.  I'll be moving the
HAVE_CFITSIO into a config.pri that can be included by the
datasources.pro and the value checked to determine whether those plugins
should be built.  It can also be done via an exists call to check if a
particular file exists if the location is fixed.
