That's not needed. There is no problem enabling ima support
conditionally in ./configure.

Build systems are unlikely to install ima in the buildroot anyway,
when there is no library or anything to link against, so
auto-detection is not really useful.

A default to off and requiring an explicit enable sounds sufficient here.
