Please add zint as dependency of glabels!

Although glabels-3 can technically compile without `zint` with no complain.
`zint` is very powerful backend, providing most of barcodes and functionality,
therefore crucial for user experience.

Currently zint is in aur and compiles without any problems,
therefore I hope that moving zint and adding as dependency of glabels is feasible.

I am skilled enough to install zint from aur, download PKGBUILD file of glabels and recompile with support.
However I am concerned that other users:
* may have trouble with this
* it's unnecessary trouble on every update to recompile
* many users may not be even aware of functionality they are missing, and discard glabels-3 program after trying, current limited version that provides just crucial backends.

Therefore, for good of users, our comfort, and good of glabels program, I kindly ask for adding zint backend (and if possible considering adding other backends listed as optional, but if one than `zint` for sure - please).

Best regards,
Grzegorz Wierzowiecki
