--with-xml whether to use libxml2 (default = YES)
This option is useful only for development, to test how medit works in absense
of libxml2. libxml2 is required for syntax highlighting, so you most likely

- --with-pygtk whether to compile pygtk support (default = YES)

whether to buil d terminal
+ --with-mooterm whether to buil terminal
Use this option if you want builtin terminal (it also requires python).
+ These two options are useful only when building standalone libmoo library,
+ and may not be used with medit.
Defaults for all the options are chosen in such a way that you do not need to
use them. Only in case of problem they may be needed.

+./configure --enable-debug CFLAGS=-g ...
+--enable-debug makes medit spit out lot of debugging information
+to console, which can be useful to trace bugs. CFLAGS=-g is mandatory
+for getting a usable backtrace in case of a crash.
+In addition to options described above, the following may be used to build
+a standalone libmoo library or python extension module:
+ --disable-medit do not build and install medit
+ --enable-libmoo actually build and install libmoo.so
+ --enable-libmoo-headers install libmoo headers
+ --enable-moo-module build and install moo python module
+ The python module is installed whenever libmoo is built, but it
+ can be also built as a big standalone module which doesn't require
+ libmoo to be installed.
