Have you considered to add some options to ./configure to enable and
disable some providers/features?

In one of providers-based library I work on, I use

./configure --enable-provider-xxx

to request build of provider XXX.

It's also possible to have more than one ./configure script:
- root level ./configure
- subproject level ./configure
