Okay, so let me rephrase that:

a) A feature was explicitly requested (though I agree this is
debatable), and cannot be fulfilled. A note - in order to avoid the
word "error message" seems appropriate.

I just noticed that avfoundation is being checked either way, whether I
explicitly --enable it or not. Which is okay.

b) ./configure is testing for certain features. I see errors in the
log, but can't easily decode which feature was being tested and what
the result was. I'm thinking in terms of autoconf: "Checking for ...
not found."

That's all I was trying to say. :-)
