We use libgailutil, not libgail, which does not really depend on any
backend and that, AFAIK, should be always installed in your system, at
least when using recent-enough GTK+s. In any case what could be done
is to actually support disabling accessibility support, which would
also remove the libgailutil dependency; patches welcome!
