[Development] Detecting hunspell in virtualkeyboard: do we really need pkg-config?

I started to work on auto detecting hunspell in virtualkeyboard and later 
found out that:

(1) It is currently relying on pkg-config to do the job.
(2) If the embedded code is present is preferred over the system version.

I find (1) rather strange except maybe if pkg-config gives some other info 
apart from the -l flag. If that's not the case the dependency is avoidable 
with a simple config.test.

Would it be preferrable to keep it like this or should I push my chabges to 
gerri? (and if so, to which branch? I'm kind of disconeected from Qt 
development thhese days).

With respect (2): normally one would prefer the system lib over the embedded 
one. Is there a reason to keep things as they are or should I revert this 
logic? (maybe in the above patch if ACKed).

Cheers, Lisandro.

If you realize that you are in a hole... stop digging.
