At the moment, you can't, but this is being worked on.

I don't think there's any option per se, but you can remove it.

--disable-IPv6, unless something's changed.

> Q.5: When I run Xorg on target platform, it print error: "Fatal server error: could not open default font 'fixed'"; that is true: I do not build any fonts, because my software is not uses X-server-side font, but, like cairo library, uses it own fonts. How I can build x-server without fixed fonts, or, with minimal volume of fixed fonts ?

Run libXfont's configure with --enable-builtins --disable-freetype, and
xserver's with --enable-builtin-fonts.
