./configure --help will give you a list of the extra options available.

./configure --disable-shared will build without shared libraries. This may
be enough for remap. For EMBOSS graphical programs you will also need
--without-X to disable linking to the X11 system libraries.

We do not regularly test whether EMBOSS builds standalone, but I have done
it in the past, and another user at EBI was trying exactly this procedure

Hope this helps
