That makes me think the user choose the wrong distribution if he cares about

As said, i don't think the patch it's worth the time it takes to write, but if
you don't want tests you should probably skip building test-poppler-glib,
test-poppler-qt, and qt4/tests
BTW, next time please attach the patch, don't put it inline, it's much easier
to extract it from the mail if it comes as an attachment :-)
