I agree. Unfortunately, the only generic arguments accepted by autoconf
are --with-xxx and --enable-xxx AFAIK. There is no way to add anything
without changing autoconf itself. It was already done by ntpd people - they
distributed patches to autoconf and automake with xntpd. If we take this
turn, many things are much easy to do.
