Do you really need this check? Shouldn't it be enough to check at
run-time in the gphoto2.c? If I remember correctly, as6e does it

The check doesn't work if gphoto2 isn't found. In this case
${ac_cv_prog_GPHOTO2} is empty and not "false". Testing for $GPHOTO2
will work, however.

Be careful with using GPHOTO2 for two different things (the name for
the gphoto2 binary and the name of the backend). Better use two
different variables to avoid confusion. E.g. GPHOTO2_BIN and GPHOTO2.
