If the decision to disable its building by default in XCB is taken, I
think we should follow XCB decision in the Debian packaging and disable
(or "not enable") its building.

But for the XCB-side decision, I really don't have enough hindsight to
have a decent opinion, so I'll leave that up to you. :)
