Major patches for KDE autoconf scripts.
These patches provide the KDE configure scripts (generated by the configure.in.in files spread all over the KDE modules) with --with-<option> and --without-<option> switches in many places where these switches are missing. This gives the user that compiles KDE the possibility to override the autodetection method used in these scripts to decide whether to make use or not of an external library or tool. Having the possibility to override all the autodection of external software has a very concrete benefit: it makes it possible for KDE packagers to build a customized version of a KDE package independently of the building host; and for source-based distributions, it makes it possible to define the dependency tree of the package in a deterministic way. The coding style of these patches is the one recommended by autoconf developers, as illustrated in the info page of the AC_ARG_WITH macro.
