No no.... I just want configure to output a summary of what it found
missing. Not a list of what you need.

When I tried to configure first time, it reported :
 - not configured because missing dependancy:
   . fancy

but I had to dig all the output to find the missing dependancy was libwebkit
(and then I had to convert that libwekbit to the equivalent for Fedora, but
that's another story).

configure knows, because it does check it, that libwebkit was missing. I
just think saying so at the end with a report :
 - not configured because missing dependancy:
   . fancy (missing libwebkit-1.0)
would make it much easier for people who are compiling.
