Hi Chuck,

I also prefer installing ports with the dependencies they really really
need - or - the only dependencies I need. And I don't like it too when
something gets installed by "force" I don't really need, and which is not
needed by the port for building too (just a nice to have).
And you know how to change things like you want? Change the things like
you think they should be (adding WITHOUT_* knobs to prevent installing
some dependencies), test that change well and then do a send-pr for the
explicit port you want to be changed. I wasn't able to find any problem
reports written by you, but maybe my search was just wrong.
