Well, that means they have to put --disable-libxcb when building ffmpeg-nox
instead of having to out --enable-libxcb when building ffmpeg-x. Same

(IMHO, they should be specifying both anyways: never rely on defaults and
you never have to worry that defaults may change.)

As long as both the enable and disable explicit option work, the default
value does not matter much. And in this particular case, considering xcb
like a system library seems more consistent.

Personally, I would like that all libraries support auto-detection, with a
"--auto-all" option to configure to enable it for everything.
