Hmmh, that being said, I'm not sure configure options are as bad as
that. Either the user builds from source, and I'm expecting her to know
what systems is used (am I wrong on that?), either she doesn't, and
that's up to the packager to have a consistent distro.

In my case, the hal/powerkit/ukit/whatever migration has already started
(both seem to be running on my Debian system), so at one point I'll be
able to switch the xfpm/xfce4-session configure flag (if it exists) to
jump in the u*/*kit wagon (we already pull consolekit/devicekit anyway,
nowadays, but that's a Debian choice)
