Well, for build systems, it is a bit more common to have top-level
configure options to adjust what needs to be built or not built, having
to do a configure only into some subdirectory is a little bit less
convenient, and the proposed patch is quite minimal.

On a related topic, would you accept a patch that allows to disable the
build/installation of gettext-tools tests and examples?
