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.
