I'm a little confused there - what exactly do you mean with
"wayland-scanner installed" ? Is that having (a) the binary,
wayland-scanner.pc & friends around, or (b) just the binary ?

If (a) what is the benefit of bailing(error) out when
wayland-scanner.pc is missing, despite it being unused ? I'm missing
something here :-(
