The dependencies are a little "new". Fine for libcurl, but for clutter
I had recommend to make that an optional dependency (now I'm unsure if
this optional dep should default to true or false). If it is false it
is up to the packagers to activate it. For this to be noticed you
would simply need a summary at the end of the configure script.
Regarding Clutter, it isn't used currently in any of the projects
hosted by Xfce.
