I have learned in the past that automatically dependencies on
installed packages is not a good idea. You may or may not have hamlib
installed. So if we get bug reports that tlf does not work with your
rig we always will have to ask if you have hamlib installed. 

I see three ways to handle it:

- keep it as it is,
- do enable it by default and allow a --disable-hamlib or
- require hamlib as a dependency you have always to fulfill or fail to

I am little bit biased to the last option as small hard disk size and
small install time is not as critical as 10 years ago. And most OMs do
use rig control today.

What do you all out there think about that?

73, de Tom
