No -- those directories are only needed when you're rebuilding the
system or installing stuff from ports. You can zap /usr/sup as well,
although it's probably empty unless you've used cvsup on that box.
You can probably live without /usr/doc, and you only need /usr/include
if you're going to be compiling stuff. There's also quite a lot of
stuff under /usr/share that you can probably live without, although
you need to be a little more discriminating there.
