This is not the current semantics.  The current semantics are that
--enable unconditionally enables an option without checking.  This is
where we differ from autoconf in not trying to second-guess the user
and accept that compilation may fail in some cases.

This is a false statement, checks are performed on "auto" only.

I suggest you to reread configure.  You seem to be a little rusty on how
it works nowadays.
