If I remember correctly you are using MSVC
in which case I believe that you can modify the
$GDAL_SRC/frmts/makefile.vc EXTRAFLAGS variable
to just include the formats you want

ie this should yield a GDAL that only did tiff and bmp

on Unix like systems you need to modify the 
$GDAL_SRC/GDALmake.opt file variable $GDAL_FORMATS
