The perfect solution, IMVHO, would look like this:  When configure is
run, it checks whether all the functions it needs are present.  If
this is not the case, then it prints a message like this:

    Couldn't find function base64-encode-region.
    Use "--with-contrib" arg to use the implementation supplied
    with Tramp.
    Beware, however: After upgrading some other package, the
    function(s) might appear, and then it is better to stop using the
    versions supplied with Tramp.
