Just to add that packagers generally need this feature anyway. Certainly enable stuff by default, but if we don't have a disable/without option then we have to hack at the configure files or do even nastier things. If it isn't a hard dep then IMHO it should always have an enable/disable option. We have patched the Gentoo ebuild for now anyway. Stuff that opportunistically links introduces unknown dependencies, and can cause linking bugs in PIC sensitive architectures like amd64.

Thanks for agreeing to patch the configure files - it does help us.
