Well, here is Diego agreeing with my current arguments, from an very
ancient thread:

Here is incomplete list of previous configure flames.

The current struggle is caused by the reversal that Diego made,
claiming that it breaks the "semantics". My claims are:
1. there is no such "semantics"
2. it is harmful for the users.

Rereading the maillist, it seems that I'm the only one that claims
default-disabled options are autodetected, but on the other hand
nobody claimed I'm wrong.
No surprise that I assumed the most logical option for correct, giving
that there are disabled options that DO execute checks when --enabled.

Anyway, I'm not going to continue this. I'll step back one more time.

Diego, never ever reverse my commit without notice beforehand.
