Subject: Re: [PATCH] libquota: Do not build libquota when disabled

Libquota is supposed to be internal library of e2fsprogs. Initially I
added the code thinking that it would be an independent library, but
it depends too much on libext2fs and should be part of libext2fs
itself. The quota header files should not be installed.

Also, e2fsck should compile even without quota support. This needs to be fixed.

Thanks,
Aditya
