not exactly.  All autoconf scripts treat --enable-XXX and --disable-XXX as
complements.  In the help-text I'm using --disable-XXX to denote options
that are normally enabled and --enable-XXX to denote options that are
normally disabled.

The help-text isn't automatic - and it is possible that the default
doesn't match the help-text (we find something like this occasionally -
will check).

Looking closely at the differences between INSTALLATION and
"configure --help", I do see (and am correcting) a couple of
discrepancies (included-msgs for example).
