Description: redshift does not offer geoclue as a provider, and just rebuilding from ABS with geoclue installed fixed this. Maybe it should also be an optional dependency. It's useful when you travel around a lot, not having to get the GPS coordinates for every country/city you go.

Additional info:
* redshift 1.7-4
* geoclue 0.12.0-5

Steps to reproduce:

redshift -l list

That should list geoclue.
After rebuild with geoclue installed, it lists it, and works great with redshift -l geoclue.
This task depends upon

Does redshift work fine without geoclue being installed if built with geoclue support?

It doesn't look like it; if redshift is compiled with geoclue, I can't seem to start it even using other providers (e.g. manual), unless geoclue is also installed.
