From bug 560927

As I was triaging my bugs I decided to file this one.

	Add a build time check for DeviceKit.
	Fixes #565867
Comment 3 Frederic Peters 2009-01-28 09:24:24 UTC
Well, it made sense as an hint to use legacy code; but I don't think it is useful in the current condition, as there was no build time dependency on DeviceKit.
