You should be able to understand it (in user or lws code) from

#if defined(LWS_ROLE_WS) && !defined(LWS_WITHOUT_EXTENSIONS)
... the support is present ...

The extensions info struct exists either way, you will get a nonfatal 
LLL_WARN log if you set it to create a context not built for 
permessage-deflate as a nudge why that's not going to work, but that's all.
