It was originally a fatal error right at the beginning but we got
complaints that build systems tend to assume they can load the
command-line with lots of crap and still expect it to work.

All I can suggest at this point is try to make it more visible (more
stars or spacing). Ofcourse with ./configure && make && make install
you still won't see it.

I would like a pedantic mode, but the method of activation is a tricky
issue. You want it to be 'on' for normal users but 'off' for automatic
build scripts.

Have a nice day,
