Indeed, I also dislike the alphabet soup of flags for disabling
things.  I propose that instead we provide a way to add a preamble
to the generated Makefile via -f <preamble> file, default to a
either a built-in configuration file, or one installed in the tree.
It is inappropriate for crunchgen to have knowledge of variables
specific to our build system that change over time.

So I propose:

1. to make that change [configuration file]
2. leave the defaults as they are for the installation binaries
3. change the defaults to turn nothing off for the rescue binaries
