That's one of those checks for stuff really only needed at runtime, not 
buildtime... (which really irks me(1))

I'd propose that runtime-only checks like that:
1.  not be fatal for the build
2.  output/warning be made clearer that this is a runtime-only 
dependency (or the check be removed altogether).

(though I suppose such a proposal may be better suited for the 
buildsystem list)

p.s.  amarok has a similar type of check for qtscriptgenerator... I'm 
sure there are others.
