The goal here was to make it so that only alpm.h need be distributed
with the library to use it.  I think it's a worthy goal, IMO.
Including an extra file really adds nothing to the end result, but
REQUIRING an end user of libalpm to include yet-another adds some
usage complexity.

Just my opinion.
