Perhaps it should be feasable through a m4 macro, something like 
GB_EXTRA_CHECKS() and a failed var (.disable file the gambas included 
components ?). Next step should be where in the project we can place this file 
in the project (or import it everytime we build the autoconf/.... package).

So it's feasable in the 3.0 branch and perhaps a backport is possible for 2.0
