if someone has the prerequisites for building libcacard, but not for building
qemu, they should be able to build just libcacard. You can achieve this by
having flags specifically, or by just behaving like we behave for features in
general, that is not building qemu if it can't be. I think the first option is
cleaner because it also allows requesting just libcacard (even if you do have
the prerequisites for building qemu).
