I just rebuilt osgEarth in both a clean VM and my daily desktop without
protobuf; both built without problem. A simple test on the desktop
worked OK - can't really test shaders in the VM.

My conclusion is that protobuf is optional. Nevertheless I tend toward
SlackBuilds that are feature rich, rather than minimalist. Therefore if
you care to demonstrate or claim that you have a use case requiring or
benefiting greatly from protobuf's inclusion, I will add it at the next
update of osgEarth.
