Question: What is the current policy for a failed detection of 
headerfiles, while the --enable-xx is used on the configure-line?

I think the configure step should fail, because a user requested a 
feature that his build environment is not correctly setup for. The 
alternative is that he finds out during or after the build, which IMHO 
is wrong and very annoying.

The above commit breaks the build on buildbots, which don't have the 
necessary development headers/libraries for libraw1394, libavc1394 and
