Details

These switches are all now obsolete. They don't hurt the build, but they actually do nothing and it's just plain untidy. Please remove:

`--enable-add-ons' - the add-ons mechanism was removed in 2017 [1]
`--enable-lock-elision' - elision was converted to a "tunable" in 2017 [2]
`--enable-stackguard-randomization' - stopped being useful in 2014 [3]
`--enable-static-pie' - became the default in latest release and was replaced [4]

I've confirmed by comparing builds with and without the switches. No difference.
