Perhaps this is a little primitive, but you could just do a normal
build/install (of everything) but remove the .desktop files for those
modules you don't want users to see. That way there is no access to
those modules via the normal menu system they would most likely be using.

Of course users could still access those modules via CLI if they know
how (unlikely ?).
