Misspelled options, unknown options etc should cause configure to report an error.

Seems there is no clean way to do this.

"Because the packages generally support different --with-package and --enable-feature options, the GNU Coding Standards say they must accept unrecognized options without halting"

Seems that because we are including libhtp via AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS() we no longer even get warnings. *sigh

Too bad. Thanks for figuring that out.
