+AC_ARG_ENABLE(objc-gc,
+[AS_HELP_STRING([--enable-objc-gc],
+		[enable use of Boehm's garbage collector with the
+		 GNU Objective-C runtime])])
+AC_ARG_WITH([target-bdw-gc],
+[AS_HELP_STRING([--with-target-bdw-gc=PATHLIST],
+		[specify prefix directory for installed bdw-gc package.
+		 Equivalent to --with-bdw-gc-include=PATH/include
+		 plus --with-bdw-gc-lib=PATH/lib])])

missing “target” in the --with-bdw-gc-*

As per Sandra’s comment,  should we understand the priority of options is

--with-target-bdw-gc-*

which overrides…

--with-target-bdw-gc=<list>

which overrides automatic discovery using pkg_config?
