I use sandcastle with an own presentation style to generate the documentation as website.

Is it possible to deactivate the full-text index generation (\fti*.*) as well as the generation of the keyword WebKI.xml?
I want to minimize the build time generating the whole documentation.

There isn't a way to shut off the full-text indexing step by default. You can write a plug-in that would run instead of the BuildStep.GenerateFullTextIndex step and do nothing. The SandcastleHtmlExtract tool generates the WebKI.xml file in addition to generating the table of contents. I doubt you'd gain much by having an option to shut off just the indexing part of it since it parses the files and generates the info for both together.
