I don't think so.  The existing usage corresponds to both configure's help
and the comments in the INSTALL file.  What makes you think you should use

$ ./configure --help |grep wrapper
  --with-tcp-wrappers[=PATH]      Enable tcpwrappers support
$ grep wrapper INSTALL
--with-tcp-wrappers will enable TCP Wrappers (/etc/hosts.allow|deny)

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
