It _is_ a configure option. :)

make$ ./configure --help
--disable-backend-bundle        Compile gui backend as a library

There's also a section about it in make/Documentation/install.texi .

The fact that it's in -make is a bit non-obvious. ISTR that there were
technical reasons (the option has a big effect on how apps are linked),
but from a quick look, I can't see any now, so it might be possible (but
maybe not preferable) to move it to -gui.
