 --with-* should have a corresponding --without-* (which sets the value to
 'no'). If not, then the flag should not use the "--with-" prefix (I was
 recently set straight on this on the icedtea list). We should ask for this
 to be fixed upstream (you'll need a 'no' case in configure.ac or the name
 of the flag should be changed). Please note that given upstream's fairly
 rigid history of "that's the way it is," the likely outcome is that
 usbutils will become a required dependency and we'll probably end up
 working around it ourselves anyhow. :-)
