The list of ports included in the gnome2 meta-port is not arbitrary.  It is
set by the GNOME release team.  Therefore, I am hesitant to change the 
meta-port.  Sure, these configurable ports are still installed by default,
but where does the customization end?  I recommend you create your own 
meta-port for gnome2, and stick it in /usr/ports/x11  (I use gnome2-marcus).
Then, you can track that port, and add to it only the components you want.
In general, you will only have to worry about updating it when major GNOME
releases come out (twice a year).
