The "feature" (AVFoundation) is autodetected, you 
cannot "request" it. Only if you specify 
--disable-indevs (or --disable-everything) you 
may enable the specific device you need.

It is similar to "--enable-zlib" which is also 
an option that (normally) has no effect (and 
never triggers a configure error).

Given that this is the behaviour for many, many 
years, I am not convinced that changing it will 
make us many friends.

Please understand that FFmpeg's configure is 
not autoconf-based and is not supposed to 
work like an autoconf-base configure script.
