I'm personally not too keen on that because --enable-mostly-builtin was 
added as a kind of hack. It was done when we didn't have the plugins cache 
mechanism and thus loading something like the 100 of plugins we have was 
quite slow (VLC's start time was getting unbearable).

If you don't want plugins, you should rather --disable-plugins completely or 
otherwise you could maybe just run a sed script on vlc-config after 
the ./configure step.
