I've looked the bug report, and it doesn't make much sense to me...
Shouldn't a well designed libgda application be database-agnostic?

Besides, at least on the distribution point of view, it doesn't make
much sense to assert that a plugin is available on compiling time, as it
doesn't say anything about the environment the user will have when
running the application.
