Yes, in this case I could have looked in there, but that file is
overwritten with every ./configure, right? That means there's no
guarantee that what's listed there is for a given Emacs build.

I think that configuration options should be tied to, and viewable
through, Emacs regardless of the value it's set to. If report-emacs-bugs
needs to know when to hide the options, then perhaps a new variable
could be introduced for that purpose.
