Nope. I've been doing that too. I have non-english and unused ports
commented out in my ports-supfile (ports-all commented out and
individual ports are in), and also listed non-language ports in refuse.
portupgrade runs fine. portdb complaints with a ton of error messages
about dependencies missing etc, but all is well.

The only gotcha I encountered is when new ports branches are added (i.e.
port-dns). Since I list specific ports in my supfile, new ports are not
caught automatically, which means the supfile needs occasional
maintenance. That's about it. And you're right, it's a space saver on
small drives :)
