You can enable/disable features (like java support) when running the configure
script (i.e. before running make).

Running "./configure --help" should give more information on how to do that.

Not that I am aware of.

As far as I know the main difference is OtpErlang.jar will not be built, which
has no impact unless you write java code which requires it.
