 I disagree - if someone is starting out, then they won't have the
 familiarity that an option should be there in the first place, so hinting
 that there's an option here that they can't access seems redundant. Keep
 the UI clean where possible.

 If they later add at least one page, then the option becomes available,
 since at that point, they can utilise it. The contextual help outlines
 this to a user, so it's not completely hidden:

 > You can choose what’s displayed on the front page of your site. It can
 be posts in reverse chronological order (classic blog), or a fixed/static
 page. To set a static home page, you first need to create two Pages. One
 will become the front page, and the other will be where your posts are
