Subject: Makefile.PL's detection summary should be more obvious
Makefile.PL produces output like: tiff: includes found - libraries found T1-fonts: includes found - libraries found png: includes found - libraries found ungif: includes found - libraries found if you're not paying attention it's easy to miss that libraries are not found when the includes are. The output should include something to indicate that the option will/won't be supported as well as the detection info. 0.45 will include detection via freetype-config/pkg-config where appropriate, this should be included too, for example: Feature Support Summary ------- ------- ------- TT-fonts: DISABLED disabled via --disable w32: NO includes not found - libraries not found gif: NO includes found - libraries not found jpeg: YES includes found - libraries found freetype2: YES configured via freetype-config tiff: YES includes found - libraries found T1-fonts: DISABLED disabled via --disable png: YES includes found - libraries found ungif: YES includes found - libraries found

This has been done differently to the way it was envisaged when the ticket was opened. We now display a short list of the found libraries and the not found. To find why a problem failed the user can scroll back.
