#1440 closed defect (fixed)

help string for —with-botan should be more helpful

It currently reads:

  --with-botan=PATH       specify exact directory of Botan library

While this switch is actually used to look for ${cv_value}/bin/botan-config

That's confusing and indeed confused a user:

We've not been good at purging defects, so I think we should at least
solve this easy one. Please review the attached diff. If it's okay
feel free to merge and close the ticket.

This patch is fine (but I didn't test). Please merge. Thanks.

Applied the patch and merged it to master. Closing ticket.

Just wondering, should we consider making it --with-botan-config and request the full path to the botan-config script?
