Configure script option checking does not work

The binutils configure script fails to check for unrecognized options: ./configure --enable-nonexisting-feature runs just fine.

This is especially confusing as there are some configure options which are not documented, e.g., --enable-plugins or --enable-threads. It would be great to protect users from mistakes when using such options.

Note that the configure script has a --disable-option-checking flag documented, which suggests that it should do option checking.

I don't have much experience with autoconf and related tools, but would be willing to invest some time to patch this if people think it's useful.
