I'm now giving up, and attaching a patch to make OpenEXR support optional.

(Patch does the former)

I would say

  definitely add the option (not controversial)

  let's make the option default off (and therefore PKGREVISION++)

If openexr gets in a state where it builds ~everywhere that imagemagick
does, we can flip the default back.

My impression is that very few uses of imagemagick use openexr.

We could also make the default different per platform.  But I would tend
to just turn it off.

Why not build ImageMagick with --with-modules and provide such optional
module as separate packages?
