There, you said it yourself - if what you want is to detect a library, 
then that's what
you should be doing. That also goes for the includes, linker flags, etc 
- that's why people
invented pkgconfig and such. This way you avoid the problems of "what if 
not all
Sailfish devices have that lib in the future (or their API changes)" and 

The same would apply for, say, Ubuntu - if I want to write lenses/scopes 
for it, then I
should be checking for libunity, and not a Q_OS_UBUNTU.
