Why are you asking this question?  Indeed, looking at
version.c:Compile_Options comp_opts[], it's clear that some of the options are
hard-coded, which I'm implying are therefore a core part of mutt.

The others are via HAVE_* defines which will come from configure checks;
either directly or in part of the configure options.

But the exercise here isn't to make the assumption that the compile options
are either to be turned into things in the configure script.  That would be

If this needs a documentation change to make things easier; patches welcome.
