You mean NOT set (ifndef).

Indeed. Presumably we need to handle the case where the option is set to
ensure you end up with the configuration as described in the help text:

          Enable legacy and possibly insecure algorithms:
            3DES encryption
            SHA1-96 message integrity
            CBC encryption mode
            DSA public keys
            Diffie-Hellman Group1 key exchange
