Try --without-<mod_name> where <mod_name> is a module name, e.g. 

This has to be done at the configure step, then build and install again.

Hint, often these kind of questions can be answered by taking a peek at 
the configure.in file in the appropriate directory. For example 
src/modules/rlm_dbm/configure.in has:

if test x$with_[]modname != xno; then

The --with-XXX and --without-XXX are standard autotools idioms.
