Also used by xentop so I think we should make this a hard dependency
check. If it were just gtraceview a soft dependency would have been ok.

The first two are used for vgabios and rombios only, I think.

We should eventually have --{enable,disable}-rombios but for now this is
also a hard dependency.

iasl is used by tools/firmware/hvmloader/... that's a hard dependency.

We should eventually have --enable-python/--enable-xend etc but for now
this is a hard dependency.
