Configure option for building only a specific list of plugins with dependencies?

typically, the base/good/bad/ugly packages work in an opt-out fashion;
plugins are built unless they are disabled with a --disable-<plugin>
option (or if their dependency isn't present).
For dependency-less plugins, there is an additional option,
--with-plugins. With this option, it is possible to specify a
comma-separated list of dependency-less plugins to build. This
effectively makes the build system switch to an opt-in mode for these
plugins: only the specified ones will be built.
However, no such option seems to exist for plugins with dependencies.
Having one would be handy. Right now, I have to explicitely disable all
plugins with dependencies that I do not want to build.
Does such an option exist, am I overlooking something?
