If it is installed... -.-

That's the biggest problem with the Linux distrubtions "ecosystem" in my 
opinion (but also one of its strengths): you can't rely on anything. 
Some distros don't install this, some don't install that, some enable 
setuid on beep (Debian), some don't (ArchLinux). No wonder that those 
systems use things like autoconf :P
