My feedback is this: You are going to enter a world of pain.

Seems that way.  Especially if the non-PGAC options won't be
handled automatically.

Some projects have solved the problem different way - by printing
out the summary of most important options at the end of configure:

PostgreSQL version X.X.X
OpenSSL: no
Integer datatime: yes
Python: yes
Perl: yes

So at the end of configure the user can visually confirm
his expectations without needing to parse the noise
from full configure output.  Maybe this would be better
