Not that fascinating. Only takes a minute to realize that x11 apps depend on 
apps outside the x11 scope and one should *always* update Mk/. The only 
categories that I've had removed from a csup port distribution are the 
internationalization categories. However, after some review of what kind of 
extra traffic these generate, I decided that it wasn't worth the editing time 
of the csup file.
Proceeding with partial ports trees or worse, partially csup'd port trees, 
gives nasty errors that take longer to debug then they save you download 

Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
