  I'd really like to see a configure switch added for opensearch
support.  When a >=2.1.6 surfraw version enters the portage tree it
would make life a whole lot easier for selecting opensearch support, or
for that matter people building by hand.  I've attached a quick patch
which adds such a test, along with a second which uses the cleaner
AS_HELP_MACRO for the --with-elvidir switch for unity.

  I'll also admit that I thought you were talking about physically
splitting the source package in to base and extra, which is the main
reason why I've been holding off on the version bump for Gentoo.

  Heh, that is cool.  I end up Googling non-standard ports surprisingly
often, as I prefer only ratified entries in my /etc/services.

  In which case the next Gentoo ebuild will point there, as currently:
