Is --enable-checking supposed to be used?

Is --enable-checking a useful option? I was under the
belief that it was useful to check the compiler, but it
doesn't appear to be used, as the compiler hasn't bootstrapped
with it in over a week, and that doesn't seem to be a
problem for anyone. Is --enable-checking a deprecated option?
