New description:

 Taken directly from Alexander's comments for #2391 (Comment 8):

 --disable-static: removes useless *.a files, please do the same with all
 drivers.

 --with-\*=/etc/\*: paths

 --disable-xorgconfig, --disable-xorgcfg: don't build interactice
 configuration tools. As demonstrated on the LiveCD, one xorg.conf with a
 single adjustment (video driver) suits everybody. As a side effect, Cards
 and Options files (that contain obsolete content anyway) are removed.
 Anyway, the programs look for these files in $XORG_PREFIX/lib/X11 (see the
 source), while they are actually installed in $XORG_PREFIX/share/X11. So
 these programs don't work now anyway, and nobody noticed. Remove them.

 --with-int10=x86emu: required for the "vesa" driver and some others that
 call into the BIOS to work under 64-bit kernels and 32-bit userspace. Yes,
 I know this is beyond BLFS, but this bug has been reported on the LiveCD
 and fixed.

 --disable-type1: freetype can handle Type1 fonts just fine.
