Not really. To link the module-loading code, you need dbh. Otherwise
compilation will fail. So you cannot test whether the module fails to
load if dbh is not installed. Ergo, do not even try to test for the
module if dbh is not installed. You will notice that dbh is set as an
optional check and compilation will not fail if dbh is not installed.

The xfce4-modules will fail to compile without dbh. No problem there.
But if we have a user who does not have dbh (hence no xfce4-modules nor
xffm nor xfcalendar either), we still want to have a working panel. So
in the case no dbh is found, compile the panel without use of
