I don't like either of those options either.
What about --with-pam, --with-ldap, --with-gnu-ld ? I also wonder
about --with-tcl, --with-perl, --with-python, --with-krb5.. We
do support quite a few platforms...
I do not like --enable-dtrace because it is a Solaris only thing and a
waste of maintability resources (although small).
It works on solaris, opensolaris, all the distributions based on
opensolaris. It should work in the next version of Mac OS X and most
likely in the next version of FreeBSD. The dtrace allows people to
answer questions on production systems that were otherwise
mysteries. I think it is not a waste at all.
I do not like --with-libedit-preferred because I think it should be
--with-libedit and readline should be ripped out.
I do not like --with-krb5 because it has extremely limited real world
I see quite a bit of kerberos in the Enterprise world.
I do not like --with-tcl because well... it is tcl
I do not like --with-pam but only because I have never gotten it to
I do like --with-python because all other languages are inferior.
I do like --with-ldap because it is pretty much standard within
directory lookups by the nature of Active Directory.
I do not like "Green Eggs and Ham", said Sam I am.
I don't understand why this has devolved into an argument about what
people do and don't like. It's like specifically choosing a forum
that will have the most disagreement.
