cygconf provides the standard arguments which are common to all
autoconf-generated configures. AFAICS (but correct me if I'm wrong)
these are not standard arguments, rather separate AC_ARG_WITHs which
some packages are choosing to implement. In that case I consider them
package-specific and I would encourage packagers to add them accordingly
to those packages' CYGCONF_ARGS or as arguments to cygconf.
Thanks though for the heads-up.
