configure --help output format

Description

The format of the configure --help output could be improved.

Line breaks are missing some places (e.g. --with-sos - there should be a line break after PROJ). --with-php is an example of nice formatting.
Here are the options that need adjustments (others could also benefit from some small changes) to avoid "overflow" in my standard size xterm.

--disable-ignore-missing-data
--with-sde-version=VERSION NUMBER
--with-oraclespatial=ARG
--with-java-include-os-name=dirname

There are also some lines where the explanation is not aligned "properly" (with the lines below and above).
Those that should be changed:

--with-agg=DIR
--without-ld-shared
--with-apxs=FILE

Fixed formatting in r6409. In addition to the indent, I also fixed several instances of [=DIR] (or equivalent) optional parameters where the square brackets needed to be escaped as =DIR? since the square bracket is also the string delimiter in autoconf.

Oopps... seems that I had missed a couple on my first pass. More formatting fixes in r6410.
