This breaks the following message shown by ./configure --help.

    By default, `make install' will install all the files in
    `/usr/local/bin', `/usr/local/lib' etc.  You can specify
    an installation prefix other than `/usr/local' using `--prefix',
    for instance `--prefix=$HOME'.

This originally comes from /usr/share/autoconf/autoconf/general.m4.

Anyway, according to ChangeLog, --enable-carbon-app was added by
Steven Tamm.  He is also the current maintainer of the Mac Carbon port
and the author of mac/make-package.  So I think he is the best person
to ask.
