unfortunately I would have to look into this first myself but a general remark:

Why are we conditionally building subsystems anyway? Shouldn't we simply have a
set of subsystem which are always built and then have switches to dis/enable 
Then, if a dependency is missing, configure should simply error.

As it is, you never really know what the configure result will be. It depends 
on the system
libraries. Which is really odd.

Maybe we should change that in general in order to avoid the confusion below?
