You missed that the name of this PR is
"Client-only builds with --disable-server"

So this PR *MUST* implement client-only build.

Your use-case is different and you need to realize that
freeIPA does not have a *unit* test for client bits.
All client parts are tested by integration tests
which require server.

I have never requested anything related to "Client-only RPMs"
I always mentioned "make install"

Let's do the correct change from semantic POV.

If you want to install tests with client-only build
then please add new configure time option for this purpose
And do not misuse option "--disable-server"

Misusing options is a bad/hacky approch
and we need to clean hacks from freeIPA and not create new one.
