In most systems I've worked with, if I say "enable something" and it
cannot be enabled I want the ./configure to exit out immediately with
a non-zero error code.  Especially when doing scripted builds, the
last thing I want to do is have the script run to completion and then
have to pipe stderr to a file and grep the output for warnings that
something didn't get included.

That's just my opinion though.  :-)
