Quoting Thomas Petazzoni, the current situation is:

 * Most host packages don't have any Config.in.host options (blind or
   visible), because they are merely build dependencies of other
   packages.

 * A few host packages do have a visible Config.in.host because they
   are useful by themselves, and not just as a build dependency of
   something else: image generation tools, flashing tools, qemu, etc.

The idea we have for the future is:

 * All host packages have a Config.in.host option.

 * The host packages that are only build dependencies of other packages
   have a blind Config.in.host option

 * The host packages that are useful by themselves continue to have a
   visible Config.in.host option.

  package/cryptopp: add a blind Config.in.host
