But my point is that the defaults in the configure script should be 
friendlier to distribution packagers. For the binaries you produce at
qt-project.org, you control the build setup, so you can easily pass non-
default configure options. At the moment, we have to pass an insane amount 
of -system-libfoo and -linked-libbar switches.
