[Nut-upsdev] New default for SNMP and USB (and HAL) compilation

I'm working on integrating the preliminary HAL support, and thought a
bit about the default configure values below:
  --with-snmp             build and install SNMP drivers (no)
  --with-usb              build and install USB drivers (no)
[  --with-hal              build and install HAL support (no) ]

I wonder if some auto detection magic (if the requirement is present
enable the feature) wouldn't be better, allowing user to bypass this
using --with-feature=no

- that this might be broaden to all "--with-feature"
- a feature synthesis might also be interesting at the end of the
configure run, to easily check what is enabled or disabled.

any thought?
