Description of problem:
Hi,

In order to reduce the size of FC would be great to trim the dependencies of some packages such as httpd-devel

Installing:
 httpd-devel             i386       2.0.54-10        base              148 k
Installing for dependencies:
 apr-devel               i386       0.9.6-3          base              518 k
 apr-util-devel          i386       0.9.6-2          base              239 k
 cyrus-sasl-devel        i386       2.1.20-5         base              1.4 M
 db4-devel               i386       4.3.27-3         base              1.9 M
 expat-devel             i386       1.95.8-6         base              127 k
 openldap-devel          i386       2.2.23-5         base              1.4 M
 pcre-devel              i386       5.0-4            base              107 k

They are all necessary unless you have specific evidence to the contrary.

You can't use httpd headers without the headers from apr, apr-util and pcre. 
You can't use the libraries from apr-util without the libraries from openldap,
etc etc.
