./configure --without-plugin-PLUGIN  option doesn't work as advertised.

How to repeat:
./configure --help --verbose  states:

  --without-plugin-PLUGIN Disable the named plugin from being built.
                          Otherwise, for plugins which are not selected for
                          inclusion in mysqld will be built dynamically (if
   === InnoDB Storage Engine ===
  Plugin Name:      innobase
  Description:      Transactional Tables using InnoDB
  Supports build:   static and dynamic
  Configurations:   max, max-no-ndb

So I run: 

./configure --without-plugin-innobase

and see:

configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --without-plugin-innobase
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu

it seems configure script doesn't actually accept options it says it would.

Suggested fix:
make the option work.

if you'll ignore the warning and wait for configure to finish you'll see that the option actually works, despite the warning.

So this is a duplicate of which bug#?
