As you say, it's not an obvious choice. In that case, we need
even better documentation of how to turn it off (of course, 
configure could do it automatically if pktrace isn't found
and issue a warning, but it should still be described in 
Would it even be possible to store a copy of the .pfa files 
on the www/ftp server and have an alternative make rule that
downloads the files if pktrace isn't available and the 
machine has internet connection? I know it takes space and
increases the release time.

Tomorrow, I'll leave for a one week string quartet course 
in Norway. I hope you others on the list take care of the
questions on the mailing lists.
