Even if ebuild deps on agent, we can't ensure the user runs the agent
and which agent he wants.
So this is a depend that can't be put on ebuilds, needs extra steps from
user in any case.
The USE flags "gtk" and "kde" are there already as convinience in
polkit's ebuild pulling some agents...
So the solution is not to create a virtual, but rather remove the
specific agent depend on the offending ebuild
