Note that ./configure can only do this if someone explicitly added  
information about all of those options to the help text of a  
particular configure script.

No, nobody has written such a help text for the FPC or Lazarus  
makefiles. There is some information in the documentation, but it  
hasn't been updated in a long time and is both incomplete and largely  
out of date.
