There's nothing about it at all in './configure --help'. It's not

This probably makes the backend compile as a bundle if it's turned on.
It's probably experimental, but it should probably be a configure
option *looks to Alex M.*

It _is_ a configure option. :)

make$ ./configure --help

There's also a section about it in make/Documentation/install.texi .

The fact that it's in -make is a bit non-obvious. ISTR that there were
technical reasons (the option has a big effect on how apps are linked),
but from a quick look, I can't see any now, so it might be possible (but
maybe not preferable) to move it to -gui.

It also needs to be set in gnustep-back (but I guess you could document that you need to use the same option in both gui and back).
