Description

For libjansson, you have these two options:
--with-libjansson-includes=DIR libjansson include directory
--with-libjansson-libraries=DIR libjansson library directory

However, if I have libjansson installed, but wouldn't like to use it, there is no way to disable it.

I found this in the context of the FreeBSD port. The JSON option is "off", but it still finds libjansson and links to it.

Please add --without-{option} for every option which has --with-{option}.

Thank you.
