Yeah, that's something that can be done for 8.4, certainly not something we can put in now. But I'll be happy to see a patch once we open the tree for
8.4 :-)

Isn't this something you do by specifying include and link search paths
to configure?  The above argument could be made for *any* library we
use, and I surely do not want to put a single-purpose switch for each
library into configure.

All the other OS packages I've looked at seem to support a per- support-option specification of the relevant installation to use for that support. I expect that's a pain to implement, but it's what I (and presumably other people) expect.

As I said this is a request for the future.
