qemu README already mentions spice and usbredir as optional
dependencies. spice-gtk README also mentions usbredir as an optional
dependency.  Perhaps a more precise wording can ovoid confusion.

I suggest that the OP should assume that an optional dependency is
expected to be present at COMPILE-TIME unless otherwise specified.

Or the OP can just read the qemu/virt documentation.
