We likely don't detect this stuff because to the best of anyone's knowledge it exists only as fiction.
How unimaginative and droll...it wouldn't be fiction if we detected it...Von Neuman machines would be inexpensive and efficient, therefore a higher likelihood they may exist
Horse-drawn carriages are inexpensive and efficient. That doesn't mean you're likely to find one in the middle of the Sahara.

A non-sequitur? Horse drawn carriages have nothing to do with space travel, or the context that the cheap, easy to make spacecraft have in the conversation.
