+1. This is necessary, because some of the choices in 1.3 were made
solely for performance reasons. I guess we could test this in the
configure stage, but I'd rather not. :)

I don't know if it should take the form of a hints file, hardcoded
into, or whatever, but it should be done.

Sure. Actually, I think you're always supposed to be able to say:

ac_blah_blah_blah=no ./configure --blah_blah
