The build system for Cinnamon does check for polkit-agent-1.pc
(libpolkit-agent-1-dev), which is what Cinnamon would have to use if it
was implementing its own internal polkit agent like GNOME Shell does -
but as far as I can see, that's a leftover from older versions, and not
actually used for anything (since 2013).
