you told so in email and on the irc.  the very fact that i am
occasionally reading the configure options alone is enough to assertain
that it is not just developers reading this stuff.

i would like that the message resemble the facts.  you type strictly
discouraged in email but the configure spew sends a different message.
one that looks like a lame message for as long as it has been there.

perhaps just pasting some of the email discouragements where it should
be, in the configure --help spew.

you know, for the honest groupies and hobbyists like me.
