If you are using FileRef, you can just check if it has a file opened.
The header files should not be installed without enabling those
options, so at compile time you can look e.g. for mp4file.h to
determine whether you have TagLib with MP4 support or not.

taglib-extras is mostly a copy of post-1.5 code from taglib trunk (ie,
the ASF and MP4 classes are identical).
