There is no --*-geoip configure option. The configuration checks for libGeoIP so that it can
build the geoip plugin in te case you build the experimental plugins. We should never be linking
libGeoIP anywhere else (that's the bug).

Yeh, there's a build option like that in there. It suffers from bitrot because there's no
maintainer and no agreement on what the minimal footprint ought to be. Increasingly I believe
that additional capabilities should be plugins.
