logind/consolekit runtime detection patch

There is a general consensus (especially in the GNOME world) that before
dropping any support for consolekit, both consolekit and logind should be
detected at runtime.
This helps distributions planning to gently migrate from consolekit to logind
to roll out a reliable path: enable logind support, have all the packages
detect consolekit/logind at runtime, eventually migrate to logind reducing the
risk of breaking current installations.

The patch I am proposing is exactly doing this, the same way GNOME does: have
xfce4-session detect logind at runtime if --enable-systemd is passed to
The attached patch is being currently tested in Sabayon and Gentoo (it's
available on the systemd-love Portage overlay).
