They're usually experimental for a reason.  ;)  I've found it easiest  
to just
add the module to the 'stable' list.

Though it might be nice to have a configure argument.  Perhaps  
something like:

./confgure --with-additional- 

One argument, that takes a list.  This makes it easier to include any  
modules as well as experimental ones in addition to the 'stable' ones.
