layoutex should be disabled by default

Description

layoutex is enabled by default by configure iff hb-le-icu is installed. It would probably be better to require explicit opt-in if layoutex is desired… actually, layoutex would be better as a separate component (if it is even desired due to its complex build process.)

I increased the priority to “medium” because I have seen people getting tripped up by having the prerequisites installed, getting layoutex configured by default, and having build problems with it even though they don’t care to build and use it.

See the nudge in https://github.com/unicode-org/icu/pull/1508#pullrequestreview-551595970
