Yes, we need to document this better.

There are currently at least three+ places build options are documented:

various Makefiles

...and none of them are complete.

A new source of information is the output of my build_options survey:

Anyone who has time to try to improve the documentation based on
the above information is more than welcome.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
