FreeType is only used by d.text.freetype.

ODBC is only relevant to the DBMI modules, which don't seem
particularly useful (does anyone know if they are actually relevant to
GRASS?). It isn't relevant to the PostgreSQL modules.

None of the other disabled options are particularly important either. 
BLAS/LAPACK are effectively unused, Motif is only used by xganim and
r3.showdspf.openGL, GLw is only used by r3.showdspf.openGL, readline
is an optional extension to r.mapcalc, and NLS (Native Language
Support) is only useful if you want certain text displayed in Russian.
