no there is no documented way to change this.  I think I could relatively
easily design a hack which would merge the two groups again, but there
would be no guarantee that the hack won't break with future version.

Well, such a change would affect the users, if they are accustomed to
the current option.

Some of your --with option specify an external software, I think, like
--with-gnu-ld.  But the subdirs and tags should indeed be specified by
--enable-subdirs and --enable-tags, IMHO.
