Hi Eike,

thanks a lot for your improvements!

Ah, yes. Good catch.

That's what Sam asked for. I thought that this makes configure switches
a little bit inconsistent, as now switches like "disable-mozilla" can be
used only in conjunction with enable-copyleft. I thought that then should get a larger rewrite so that all stuff that is
disabled by the new switch should get "enable" switches and not
"disable" switches. But now when I see your changes I agree with them
and think that we can rewrite the configure logic later.

Interesting, I got the tar.gzbuilt on Ubuntu. Maybe your changes caused
the difference? It's important that EPM is not disabled as the stupid
instsetoo_native module does not do anything in that case though it
could create the tar.gz without problems.
