This is fine for interpreted code, but when compiling files the compiler
does not "know" that it should look at "file-containing-foo" as well.
Better use PROVIDE and REQUIRE, like this:

(eval-when (compile load eval)
  (when (fboundp 'foo)
    (pushnew ':HAVE-FOO *features*)
) )

#-HAVE-FOO (require 'module-foo "file-containing-foo")
