I'm not disputing that statement. However I'd like point out this is
a change in behaviour of configure which seems to have occured
between hg20070727 and hg20070728. It also is a change w/r to how the
current released version behaves.

I'm happy to stop using --with-card-options=...
I only added it because at some point in the past it had been required
for adding seq-rtctimer-default.

Assuming that's no longer needed I will remove it from my build scripts.
