Yes but not without inconvenience.  If he doesn't want images and hasn't got
the headers for gif, tiff or png then configure presumably aborts three
times until he finally uses:

configure --without-gif --without-tiff --without-png

and then he has to go through all of it again if later he wishes to configure
with different options, e.g., CFLAGS=-g .

No, it aborts once and spells out the options to use so they can be copy and pasted.
