Command Explanations

--disable-static: このスイッチはスタティックライブラリをインストールしないようにします。

--without-team: This switch disables the team configuration editor since it requires Jansson which is not currently in BLFS.

--without-selinux: This switch forcibly disables SELinux support since it is not currently in BLFS and the build will fail without it.

--without-wwan: This switch disables WWAN support. Use this if you do not have ModemManager-1.6.8 installed.
