Um. I don't think that tangling is a bad thing really.
Having different variables or options for it will be
too bloated, in my opinion.  I don't think there should
be anything done with it.

How about something like this:

--- a/configure
+++ b/configure
@@ -3810,7 +3810,7 @@ fi
 if test "$libattr" = "yes" ; then
   echo "CONFIG_LIBATTR=y" >> $config_host_mak
-if test "$virtfs" = "yes" ; then
+if test "$virtfs" = "yes" && test "$target_softmmu" = "yes" ; then
   echo "CONFIG_VIRTFS=y" >> $config_host_mak
 if test "$vhost_scsi" = "yes" ; then

(BTW, why configure uses this "test" instead of more readable [ ] ? )

This has been addressed by a separate patch sent by afaerber.
