Found the reasoon:
It was broken by upstream when migrating to autoconf, especially by this commit:;a=commitdiff;h=8e855d14599d14dda4fb87a8635828e5c0b343a0
It seems configure doesn't define KEYCODES_PROGS=yes and RESIZECONS_PROGS=yes correctly.
I will fix this tonight unless someone else wants to step in (just set those vars when doing make).
BTW, is there any usage for those listed in OPTIONAL_PROGS?
