It will be the default to search for such a pre-installed dmake first. 
No option has to be specified for this. After all, whoever installed it 
has (hopefully) done that knowing about the GPL license.

The --with-dmake-path is only necessary when dmake is installed in a 
place that is not in $PATH.

Yes, I have seen that.  I just don't know if there are any policies 
against downloading binaries during configure/setup/build. But the use 
of pre-built binaries is definitely an option.

By the way, the other archives that are downloaded during 
configure/setup have MD5 checksums.  Can you add one to the dmake 
archive as well?
