As a distrubution maintainer, our distro package builds use our
custom infrastructure, not build.sh.   For build.sh, this seems
like a nice idea, to avoid the configure warnings I get from
passing flags like --disable-gallium as global flags even though
only one module built by build.sh can handle it.

However, I wasn't quite clear on how to use it - perhaps because
I've failed to pay attention long enough that I didn't remember
what "the --modfile file" referred to (nor have I had time to
look into this patch really, given other priorities recently
eating most of my time).
