configure: don't generate warnings on missing features
New users get confused by the warnings generated by configure about non-essential features.
Language should be updated to be informational, or perhaps not mention it at all beyond configures normal output. The summary at the end could be enough.

Not really. The table/listing at the end of configure we have now might be good enough for most cases, but it'd be nice to also output the package names for installing the dependency of a feature somewhere. Currently that is part of the warning/error messages.

With table/listing you mean the build-info like output?
So you would remove all warnings for optional parts and just have a list in the end with the info what is needed for those optional parts?
Would be a nice overview table/matrix in the docs useful as well or duplicated work?
I also saw that we're a bit inconsistent with the install recommendations, most are Ubuntu/Fedora/Centos but some just Ubuntu. Also mix between several methods (apt install and apt-get install). Could be moved to docs as well.
