FWIW, XEmacs has used a bit of m4 magic to make --with-* and --enable-* equivalent for 15 years, and nobody has ever complained.  The autotools convention is a distinction without a difference, and confuses users when a program feature depends on an external library (especially where there are alternative implementations).
