I've not said it does as I know it doesn't. I'm asking if the support
for it can be removed through the configure script.

Can you let me know (off list) how to do this?

It's in Fedora rawhide (unstable packages r us)

Not a problem.

Will do. I'm sorry, I thought you were on this list anyway.

Whoa! What knee-jerk reaction are you on about? My questions was can the
support be disabled through a script option - I've made no assumptions
or anything like that (and for a change not gone into the politics
surrounding moonlight and Fedora!).
