I have updated configure.usage. With these updates, one can use the
elisp package Build again to build a daikon XEmacs.
-- Added lots of `with-' prefixes to options.
-- Installation options took always the next line as documentation.
E.g.,--bindir was represented in Build, --datadir was missing, etc.
Still missing: --with-zlib, --with-infodock, --with-native-sound-lib.
I couldn't decide in which section I should put them, or if I should
open a new section.

* configure.usage: Update to current options of configure,
to make elisp package Build work with daikon as well.

By default, optimization is on in release versions

Normally, don't set this, as XEmacs will already set

Override compiler flags used to add debugging
information to the executable. Normally, debugging
information is added whenever possible (i.e. unless

permit debugging and optimization simultaneously).
