Too many fonts with 7.2

I notice that with 7.2, many more fonts are installed by default. 
This includes many fonts that are probably very rarely used by most 
people, like font-misc-ethiopic. I would prefer not to have those fonts 
installed on my system. Simply pkg_deleting them is not a satisfying 
solution, since it breaks dependencies, and the next time 
xorg-fonts-truetype is updated, they'll be back.

Sooo... could maybe the number of font dependencies be reduced, or some 
of them made optional? Or is there some clever (and persistent) hack to 
ignore some ports?
