	Ah ! you mistake me; for the developers profile (the default build) we
should simply pass no configure option - and the default there should be
to auto-detect.

	Certainly - so packagers should explicitly pass --enable-foo or
--disable-foo depending on what they want, and if foo is not there it
should then break horribly :-)

	Surely that doesn't create problems for distros ? [ it is easy to add
the explicit flags to the distro configs ]
