It will be only slightly faster to disable the scripts that are not needed:

  $EnablePGCust = 0; # if you don't have per-page or per-group customization
  $EnableAuthorTracking = 0; # you don't display diffs and [[~Author]] links
  $EnablePrefs = 0; # to disable preferences for authors
  $EnableSimulEdit = 0; # to disable edit conflict resolution
  $EnableDrafts = 0; # disable drafts
  $EnableWikiTrails = 0; # if you never use <|WikiTrails|>
  $EnableWikiStyles = 0; # if you never use wikistyles like >>div<< or %css%
  $EnableMarkupExpressions = 0; # if you never use {(...)} markup expressions
  $EnablePageList = 0; # if your wiki doesn't use pagelists OR searches
  $EnableVarMarkup = 0; # disable links to documentation for PmWiki variables
  $EnableForms = 0; # if your readonly wiki never uses any HTML forms
  $EnableUpgradeCheck = 0; # not needed for a readonly wiki

$EnableBlocklist, $EnableNotify, $EnableDiag are disabled by default but  
if you have enabled them in your admin backend, you may disable them here.

But what would be faster is to enable pagelist cache and HTML cache, see  
$PageCacheDir and $PageListCacheDir :
