For example, in configure.ac, if the block that calculates
emacs_config_options was moved to the bottom before

AC_DEFINE_UNQUOTED(EMACS_CONFIG_OPTIONS, "${emacs_config_options}",
                   [Define to the options passed to configure.])

then system-configuration-options is:

"dummy pkg-config 'CFLAGS=-g3 -O2' 'CPPFLAGS=  ' 'LDFLAGS= '"

I'm not sure what 'dummy pkg-config' is doing there, but otherwise I
think that it would be nice to have this as the default.
