How about some more of our compilation options?
Could we merge --with-dnsupdate into --with-ads?
Does --without-iconv ever work or make sense (it builds)?
(or in the alternate does anything but UTF-8 still make sense?)
Is --with-fake-kaserver still relevant?
Is there a better way to do --disable-fault-handling
than having a configure options?
On one we can probably agree with, --with-ntvfs-fileserver should just
be a side-effect of other options like --enable-selftest, it should not
be an option on it's own.

util: Add --disable-fault-handling.
On some platforms you can not debug coredumps after the default
gets done dumping core. This allows waf to have an option to
default signal handler.
"Just asking questions" ;-)
But more seriously, I would like us to have less ./configure options so
we have less build profiles that we promise work, which in turn means
less CI resources to prove them (they are $$$) and more chance that
what we ship works for our users.
