the help text and the configure option get-easy-option/get-easy-options are inconsistent:


Lines 3803 to 3809 in a3a298d

dnl ************************************************************
dnl disable the curl_easy_options API
AC_MSG_CHECKING([whether to support curl_easy_option*])
AS_HELP_STRING([--enable-get-easy-options],[Enable curl_easy_options])
AS_HELP_STRING([--disable-get-easy-options],[Disable curl_easy_options]),

I am not sure which variant is correct here, so I'm opening this issue instead of a PR.

Since this sets the define CURL_DISABLE_GETOPTIONS with a plural s, maybe go with that for all of them?

Bastian-Krause added a commit to Bastian-Krause/curl that referenced this issue Jun 8, 2021
"get-easy-options" is the configure option advertised by the help text
anyway, so use that.

Closes curl#7211
