 The CUPS support switch is intentionally not exposed via options,
 because KDE is very clearly intended to be used with it. The support for
 alternative printing systems offers less functionality and considerably
 worse usability. Experts who can deal with this are offered both a
 cups-less binary package, an alternative and a convenient (non-OPTIONS)
 switch in the mainport to set up their systems with.
 The libthai dependency will not be made optional, since it is not a
 localization feature - it is required by khtml's text rendering engine.
 The fact that it can be disabled at configure stage at all is just
 remnant of the time when that code was being tested prior to inclusion
 into the main distribution.
 The kdelibs3 Makefile does not contain an explicit dependency on
 kerberos. The configure check should simply fail to detect kerberos and
 then configure kdelibs to disable support for it. Does the configure
 script fail for your if no kerberos is installed on the system?
