Why not make --with-xft=emacs,nomenubars,notabs,nogauges as you
suggest the quick fix? This will make users specifying --with-xft=yes
For the future a situations where XE_COMPLEX_OPTION has only "no" as
default, making "--with-XYZ=yes" a noop, I suggest making that a
configuration error, eg configure should complain. Just mentioning it
in Installation is not clear enough.
