Configuration flags are reserved for features that introduce extra dependencies, for instance spellchecking, HTML5 multimedia support, Web Audio etc.

Remote inspector support doesn't introduce any new dependencies, and can be disabled at runtime. Because of that there's no need for an extra configuration flag -- the feature should be enabled at build-time.

The only thing I'd recommend changing is to move ENABLE_INSPECTOR_SERVER definition to SetupWebKitFeatures.m4 and define it to 1 unconditionally.
