Seems straightforward to me. Whether or not a project considers older
versions "deprecated" is irrelevent, the fact is they exist and this
code compiles against them with the trivial patches supplied.

It allows for the case where the system pkg-config exists, but the
installed libcurl has not installed a pkg-config file.

I had a brief look over those patches, they look ok to me. It may make
sense to hold off on the Kate support for 1.2.0 as you suggested, as
that is experimental; and you probably want to simply remove the
printf in the last hunk.
