Fine for a quick installation hack, but the configure script is usually
automatically generated, these days...

Astoundingly enough, the best course of action is usually to read the
README file (which will point you at the INSTALL file (which will tell
you how to set configure options and flags)) as well as any more specific
README files. "configure --help" is _less_ likely than that to give any
targetted help.
