Sections 4.2.6 and 4.3 mention using "--with-wrappers" to enable TCP Wrappers.
option does not cause "configure" to fail, but instead, silently does nothing. 

The correct option is "--enable-wrappers".

This is also a minor security bug as people might think their systems have
TCP Wrapper restrictions, but unless someone tests it, they won't realize it
isn't working.
