This is an example of KControl optimizing I discussed in the etherpad, where a KControl module should appear only when the underlying related software is available. That is, the Zeroconf Service Discovery module should not build when a DNS service discovery service is not available. Or, should not appear even if built when a DNS service discovery service is not installed at run time.

I use Slackware. I don't use themes, but point me to a couple of example themes and I'll help troubleshoot.
