I'm not talking about the inter-dependencies between modules. I'm fine
with the configure not handling them. The problem is the cfgtest_*
programs and their output. There are actually two issues with them.
One being that they break cross-compilation (they cannot be run
because they're built for the target arch). And the second issue is
that they're not compiled/executed when --enable=MODULE is specified,
so qt features such as opengl support can be mis-detected.
