Of course, but my point it, you won't use eg the irix back-end in linux, so
infact each of the native backends can be seen as "either or", but not two
the same time, that's why I don't think you need those options. My intention
is, that eg a linux user doesn't want to see irix, morphos, windows etc
options. That's why in CMake I try to present only options which are
available on current target. Using one name for all exlusive-or backends
seems to make senese to me.

Good question. I think this is a good point, as I don't really se the sense in
specific dlopening, as well.
BTW, shouldn't there be a check before enabling back-end dlopen in configure
whether the dlopen stuff failed or not (there is some check for libdl or
alike)? Or do I confuse something?
