if not fallback to using pinky instead. This enables us to downgrade
consolekit to a recommendation instead of a dependency. (Closes: #665987)

* Remove dependency of `acpi-support-base` on `kbd | console-utilities` and
move the dependency on `consolekit` from `acpi-support` to
`acpi-support-base` since `getXuser()` and `getXconsole()`, using
`ck-list-sessions` instead of `fgconsole` since 0.140-1, are in
`power-funcs` which is in `acpi-support-base`.
