Yeah, and that's The Right Thing. What I would like to see, though, is 
a summary printed at the end of the configure run (cf XEmacs or mc).
This would list all image format that Imlibs will support (and perhaps 
those it can not due to missing libs).

I think that packages should not just rely on imlib present, but
explicitly check for the support of the needed image formats. I.e.
gnome-core should check for png-support, and *then* should a
reasonable error message be printed (since a panel without the pngs is 
pretty useless).
