I am also in favor of either getting rid of --with-tags, or supporting
it via a macro that the package author needs to add.
Currently libtool adds a --with-tags option to the configure script
for each package which uses it.  This is confusing to package users
since there is no context associated with the option:

                          include additional configurations [automatic]

An option like


would be clearer for an end user.  However, I would also contend that
end-users should have no need to be aware that a package uses libtool.
