Except that for distributions, if there's a bugfix which needs to be
applied to libaio, it now needs to go to two different places.  This is
a path that is all but guaranteed to be a headache for distros in the

Yes that's valid.  How about we add the proposed config option and set
its default from a test whether the required files exist?
