I'd read `man src.conf' (note the WITHOUT_* variables), and you
probably should ask this type of a question on questions@ next time
(it's a bit more fitting to be discussed there). Apart from that you
should be able to grab whatever binaries you want with custom scripts,
similar to what NanoBSD [1] does...

Good luck though,
