OOPS! Forget all I said. We don't want that.
I thought that the defaults only was applied when --with-XYZ was
specified not that they were _the_ defaults. Sorry.

Fine. So XE_COMPLEX_OPTION needs two defaults then. One default when
the options isn't mentioned at all and another default when the user
wants the option but with no details specified? This doesn't sound
that hard to get right.
Maybe XE_COMPLEX_OPTION works for the other options except xft so we
ought to introduce another macro XE_XFT_OPTION in order to play with
it without messing up for other options?
