I looked again at Configure to see what I missed. When you use
no-whatever, it adds "whatever" to @skip which causes "whatever" to be
removed from the list of directories, so "make link" never gets run on
"whatever". So with "no-engine", "make links" never gets run on the engine
directory and engine.h isn't linked. Sorry I missed that in the earlier
