It is not inconceivable that someone might not know that something
is in the distribution or may be confused about an option in the
existing binary. So asking that question is entirely appropriate.
No one is insisting that they not build something but it is appropriate
to at least figure out what they know. It could save someone a lot
of pointless work.
