True, if you are making a distribution it can be a bit of pain.
sed -e'1224,1343s/auto/no/' configure
Numbers could be a bit extended, so that if anyone messes a bit with new
options script would catch up automatically.
But a common user (and we are aiming at them AFAIK) should be able to do
./configure and have everything he has built in, not spending hours
trying to guess what he can build and what he cannot. Distribution
managers are required to do some extra work ;)
