Well, if you're just concerned about patch size - we could do that
in smaller steps. Option declarations (AC_ARG_ENABLE+friends calls)
already seem to be pretty separated from actual option handling,
so this, IMHO shouldn't be such a big deal.
The more interesting question to me right now is: how to add the
separate section headers, so configure --help would look like:
>> --enable-some-foo blaah
>> MacOS-X target specific options
>> --with-macosx-sdk .....
