However, I do use tcsh for shell operations and sh for scripting. I can see the merit of not building BIND as you said. I checked the ports, and these programs also exists in ports, I guess I can always build and install from port after a fresh port cvsup if I need to later on.

Yes.  As I understand it, however, you can still not build some of them,
which would be useful if you're not using that service.  For example:
many people won't be using BIND on their box.  Some people use bash, or
korn shells and therefore csh/tcsh are redundant.

Hope that helps,
