Actually that one did only disable it for the build (compiling
system), but that part was later removed. liblangtag already gets
disabled in configure.ac when not explicitly enabled:

"$enable_liblangtag" = "" -a $_os != Android

Seems like that was the cause - even if it was size limitations, those
do no longer apply, as Michael said, so no reason to disable if it
