The best solution would be move (at least part of) opt_init() routine 
and make it follow status_init();

If we don't (this is unstable way):
- use bleeding as is now (compiled with OpenCL), will always show 
*-opencl formats in --help.
- use bleeding as is now (compiled with OpenCL) in a machine without any 
devices will show an error if you try any *-opencl format. Hey, luser 
saw this *-format using --help.
- ordinary formats will work as expected.
