It would be nicer, but it can't be accomplished in the current build
system.  Apache passes the configure command line through to all the
libraries which do their own configuration.  So there is no way for any
particular part of the configuration to know what --enable options are
meaningful.  That means you can --enable-incredible-hulk if you'd like,
and configure won't complain.  Very nasty.
