There are two types of plugins, those without external dependencies
and those with external dependencies. 

To select which of the plugins without external dependencies you 
want to build, use the configuration option --with-plugins.  The
option to build all these plugins would be 


which would result in the same as if the option was not specified
at all (if the line above is broken into two it is because of my 
mailer; it should all be on one line).  You can then remove those 
plugins you do not want to build by removing them from the list 

To exclude plugins with external dependencies from the build, you
need to use the corresponding --disable-* option.  The following
is the list of options which can be used to disable plugins with
external dependencies:


Other options which may come in handy when disabling stuff you 
do not want to build are:
