first (before adding an option), I'd try to see if there's a reliable way
to automatically test if that feature should be #define'd (my recollection
of that, was that I didn't see that it could be).

For USE_EXTERNALS, I'd make an option (e.g., "--with-externals").  I'll look
at this a little later this week.
