You'll have to rewrite your configure script to generate all
directories _even_ if not all the features are used.

Automake tries to ensure that 'make dist' enters all directories and
copies all the files.  The generated package can later be configured
with different settings, after all.  So, all the directories and
Makefiles should exist, even if they're never invoked during some
builds.
