Yes, I think it makes sense to use the same word for it on all lines. Let's
use "enabled" on them all.

Well, I think the names are for different purposes. The HAVE_* defines are
what are detected and checked by configure and says what the system has
available or can do. The CURL_DISABLE_* fines are then options that may select
to ignore what the system has available and build without support for that

I think in general we've taken the approach to use a _third_ define in the
code, like USE_LDAPS which then gets set in setup(_once).h like:

#if defined(HAVE_LDAP_SSL) && !defined(CURL_DISABLE_LDAPS)
#define USE_LDAPS 1

... and I think this approach is rather good since it keeps the defines
separated for their specific uses.
