        This theory is incorrect.

        I'm not sure about help2man, but for the others: yes.
        The price will be having them automatically reinstalled every
time a port is built which uses them.  While doing so will not take
long ... none of these is a space-hog, nor do they adversely affect
system operation.  General practice is to leave them be.
