Double-checked on all VMs I used to test this pachset:

- on Fedora 25, Debian 17.04, Gentoo and ArchLinux, just graphviz
is enough for PDF support.

- on Fedora 26, graphviz-gd is needed for PDF support;

- on OpenSuse Tumbleweed, I was unable to discover a package that
would make GraphViz to support pdf. There, it uses graphviz
version 2.38, with is the same version as used on Fedora 25.

That is with just graphviz:

mchehab@OpenSuse:~/docs> dot -Thelp
Format: "help" not recognized. Use one of: canon cmap cmapx cmapx_np dot eps fig gv imap imap_np ismap pic plain plain-ext pov ps ps2 svg svgz tk vml vmlz xdot xdot1.2 xdot1.4

And that is with graphviz-gd:

mchehab@OpenSuse:~/docs> dot -Thelp
Format: "help" not recognized. Use one of: canon cmap cmapx cmapx_np dot eps fig gd gd2 gif gv imap imap_np ismap jpe jpeg jpg pic plain plain-ext png pov ps ps2 svg svgz tk vml vmlz vrml wbmp xdot xdot1.2 xdot1.4

So, we need a way for kfigure to fallback when distros don't
have such feature.

Regards,
Mauro
