Whilst playing with a new 4.3.3 install on RH9.0 linux trying to figure out why $_ENV was empty (thinking maybe a config option caused it to not populate the array) I found that:

At some point between 4.0.6 and 4.3.3 the configuration option --enable-track-vars was removed from everything expect   This change does not appear in the change log and no reference can be found to what it actually did.

Most people upgrading will still be using this flag and should know it is no longer required.

Doing './configure --help' is a good idea.
(And btw. it doesn't matter if you use non-existing configure options, they're just ignored and have no effect)

The option has been removed from the spec file already in CVS.

Not every deprecated configuration option needs to be documented.
