I'm not sure what you're saying here, but if you want to avoid a surprise you 
can run make config to choose options, then re-run make all-depends-list: the 
dependency list changes according to the config options.

This is occasionally useful - for example it's how I found out that 
security/krb5 can be prevented from bringing in the whole of teTeX and its 
dependencies: just unselect the documentation (which is selected by default).

(On a separate note, does it strike anyone else as a bit excessive to install 
teTeX - which is well over 100MB of download not counting its own 
dependencies - behind the scenes as part of installing documentation?)
