10 Generally, I've noticed that use flags are named for the functionality
11 they enable, rather than the libraries that they pull in as depends. It
12 might be a cleaner approach to use "ieee1394" or even just "1394" as the
13 global flag, and then if any future packages offer a choice between
14 libs, add some local flags as appropriate.
