I am not opposed to the patch, but what I like about things like just
having --disable-java is that it is clear that we default to enable.

With the dependency tracking like this for example, it is not clear from
the output of configure --help what the default is, on or off? Perhaps
we should state that in the help text (default is enabled, or whatever
