My suggestion would be to not worry about it. If they aren't active,
then they are simply taking up space. Why make things complicated?
Just don't use them. An OpenBSD installation that doesn't use X will
take up somewhere around 350M of disk, not counting swap space.
Chances are you have a much larger disk.
If you are determined to make a smaller installation, during the
install you can elect to not install games and the man pages. You
could also not install the compiler, but then you can't build things
if you need to.
Keep it simple.
