--disable-static: This switch prevents installation of static versions of the libraries.

--enable-gtk-doc: Use this parameter if GTK-Doc is installed and you wish to rebuild and install the API documentation.

--libexecdir=/usr/lib/vte-2.90: This option puts the package's private program into /usr/lib/vte-2.90 instead of /usr/libexec in accordance with the old version of the FHS used before LFS-7.5.
