What does --with-libevent without --enable-event-api do? The packages
I've created now used --with-libevent and a manually installed header
file. Does --enable-event-api do anything else I am missing?

My point being of course, I see a bug where you see a feature :)

And since every distro got it wrong, I think merging --enable-event-api
and --with-libevent into one target that also installs the header
file is the proper bugfix.
