      --buildtype=release                       \
      -Dgtk_doc=false                           \

Command Explanations

--buildtype=release: Specify a buildtype suitable for stable releases of the package, as the default may produce unoptimized binaries.

-Dgtk_doc=false: This parameter disables generating API documentation using gtk-doc. If you have GTK-Doc-1.33.2 installed and wish to generate the API documentation, omit this switch.

-Dmobile_broadband_provider_info=false: This switch disables WWAN support because mobile-broadband-provider-info is not in BLFS. Omit this switch if you have it installed and wish to enable WWAN support.
