disables build of the vba compatibility api shared library ( but not 
iirc the idl & type libraries )

no iirc it should be separate. I am surprised though that a build with 
--disable-vba even works, there were problems in the past maintaining 
this ( since practically nobody builds without it ) If you wish to open 
a bug please do although I fear if it really is to do with the configure 
switch it would be very low priority to fix that ( but of course a patch 
would be welcome if indeed this is at fault ) But are you really sure 
that the CreateObject broken-ness is due to the flag ?
