Any strong reason for that?  A Good Reason might be that you're building for some
specialist (perhaps IoT) device.  Bad reasons might be misguided ideas of security or
performance on a regular server.

If you really want that, you can disable mod_so, which is what the server uses
to load dynamic modules.

You've got your syntax wrong on all those --disable arguments.  No "mod_".

You'll also find it refuses to run without system security.  On Linux that means you
need mod_unixd, unless you're living on-the-edge with some third-party alternative.
