So we're ditching <loroot>configure.in? Fair enough. BUT.

It's just that, at present, if the system doesn't have kde4, then by
default it will crash at the "make" stage. This patch means that autogen
will fail with an error message. (And I can't easily test for libsolid,
because it doesn't create a pkgconfig file - at least it doesn't on my
gentoo system.) I would have thought bringing any failure forward was a
good thing?

I daren't actually do the test for kde3, because that might not create
pkgconfig files, and not having a kde3 system I can't quickly and easily
check whether the libs actually do.
