Ah, thanks, I'll include that in the v4 of the patch.

There is no polkit tagged release that includes the ITS files
(although distributions may ship updates of the last tagged release
with them), so I'm going to avoid any automagic to detect whether the
polkit version installed has those files, and just ship them in the
data/its directory, at least until we can build-depend on a specific
polkit version.
