Yeah. This is a topic this keeps on cropping up on various mailing lists.
It'd be lovely if FreeBSD had a packages/installation system that
offered a more fine-grained choice of what binaries from the base system
are installed, but it's an awful lot of work and I dont think anyone has
stepped up to the plate yet.
Having said that - I think the "libh" project was supposed to be
addressing some of this. See http://www.freebsd.org/projects/libh.html
but I'm not sure what the current status of the project is.
