This is not a problem of prioritization and the Trac tickets do not indeed
prevent accepting contributions to current FreeIPA branches (well, of course,
big refactoring would not fit stabilization release etc.).

However, AFAIU, in this case Gabe tried to make an unused autotool option up to
date, which as Martin correctly stated "the better solution is remove it,
instead of keeping dead code up-to-date".

So in this light, the patch does not break anything, but is not the best move
forward either as it would promote redundant work in maintaining unused
autotools variable.
