Ok sounds good, I figured that EAL logging had a dependency on MEMPOOL+MBUF and was able to skip building of a whole bunch.

Yes, it is possible. in your case, you just want to use EAL.

Of course. AFAIK the only requirement for AES-NI is when using AES-NI SW cryptodev.
It should be disabled in default config.
