No, I think this is a very very useful feature, only autoconf-lamers prefer
the other behaviour.
Do you know how frustrating it is, when autoconf just simply won't _force_
enable the requested feature, just because it's broken detection system
doesn't work? (Rudiger: I'm not interested)
It's much simpler to fix its detection bug in the created Makefiles, than
in the well-known gigantic ./configure mess.

No, that can't be automated. I'm against changing current behaviour.
