All the required dependencies (beside OpenSSL for cURL) are included
with the CMake sources and it will optionally use those.
Note that some libraries are also only used for some features that are
non essential, for example libuv is only for the "server" mode of CMake
for better integration with IDEs, Qt is used for the Qt client...
