Since glibc now has --disable-build-nscd and --disable-nscd configure 
options, I don't think such an option group is of use any more.  And since 
the separate EGLIBC source tree is being phased out and will cease to be 
maintained after 2.19 branches in a few months' time (and, with it, the 
option groups feature will die unless someone merges it to glibc), I don't 
think adding new option groups is useful in general.
