patents and GPL? yikes. yes, please make this disabled by default.

Most excellent! JBIG-KIT uses the GPL license (not LGPL) and I have heard that use of JBIG is covered by some patents. Since this is the case, should the configure script default to not supporting JBIG so that users don't accidentally violate licenses?

FYI, patent information as discovered by the JBIG-KIT author is available at "http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/jbigkit/patents.html".
