I guess I need to clarify what 'on' for those mean. I understand
that 'off' means the corresponding library should not be checked
for and used. Does 'on' mean to check for library? Or to use it,
and fail if it's not found?

For example, on Linux, by default, we should probe for ICU and
use it if available. If "with icu on" is explicitly specified by
user, what should we do?
