You not.
You shouldn't use any "-enable" options, aprat from XVMC and maybe one
or two more but they are exotic and if you didn't search for it how to
enable it then you don't need them.
It is because if you disable some thing and force enable something else
("-enable" options force it whenever it is right or wrong, no matter
what) it could be that this forced enabled thing could need options that
you disabled and hence compilation errors.
So if you don't use "-enable" options at all using "-disable" options
shouldn't give you any errors during compilation.
