Right now, since we aren't yet at release point, I think the highest
priority is having it compile out of the box on as many machines as
possible. The second priority is exercising as much code as possible.

So the current behaviour is to enable YP by default (exercising the YP
code), but to disable it with a warning message if the curl library
isn't available or of an adequate version (increasing the odds of a
successful untweaked compilation).

I've added a --disable-yp option. Obviously this turns off YP even if
curl is installed. --enable-yp on the other hand causes configure to
error out if curl isn't available.

How does that sound?
