Thanks! Here is what I came up with, in case it's useful to anyone:
./configure --disable-mod-activation --without-gssapi --without-apxs --without-berkeley-db --without-neon --without-serf --without-swig --without-ctypesgen --without-kwallet --without-gnome-keyring --disable-javahl --disable-keychain
How can the tools be disabled without modifying makefiles?
