center-lock rotor combo still squeal? I'm looking to purchase a new wheelset and I like the XTR wheels. Is the XT rotor a better choice for this setup?

Can you build wheels with XTR hubs, XT rotor, Mavic 32 hole 816 tubeless rims, 14/15 DB and AL nipples as light as the XTR wheelset?

the xtr rotors do still squeal, so you should go for the xt rotors (i think theyre 3g heavier per rotor), but im not sure which would be lighter

No, those rims are going to be too heavy.
You could possibly try equal it out by goinbg with supercomp spokes are something? That will loose a bit more weight, but it still won't be at the same weight....
But it will be cheaper!
