I'm afraid that's not true.
When you disable something in src.conf(5), its files *will*
be removed when you do "make delete-old".
See the file src/tools/build/mk/OptionalObsoleteFiles.inc
for all the details. It's included by src/ObsoleteFiles.inc
which in turn is included by src/Makefile.inc1 (after
/etc/src.conf was parsed by share/mk/bsd.own.mk).
If that doesn't work for WITHOUT_NTP, then that's a bug.
Probably some entries missing in OptionalObsoleteFiles.inc.
