Description (last modified by dmorissette)

In README.CONFIGURE you list a bunch of options that can be passed to
./configure to enable support for certain things.

It would be nice if you could list which options add support for software that
is only available for specific platforms. Something like this):


--with-jpeg, ...

Windows only:

--with-foo, ...

MacOS X only:

--with-bar, ...


It would also be nice to have a list of configure options that enable support
for proprietary software (ie: not free software/open source), which would be
split into ones that require such software at build time and ones that simply
enable support for such software at runtime.
