So if someone specifies --with-openfabrics configure then tries to configure all components requiring the openfabrices stack. Likewise if someone say's --without-openfabrics none of the components requiring openfabrics will build?


My proposal is two-pronged:

1. Unify the specification of the OpenFabrics stack location under the option name --with-openfabrics (and --with-openfabrics-libdir).

2. Have consistent behavior between the configury of all OFED-lovin' components (currently the 4 I listed), per your description:
   * --with-openfabrics[=DIR] means that all OFED-lovin' components must configure successfully, or fail
   * --without-openfabrics means that all OFED-lovin' component must not build
