This is not necessarily wise.  It could be TRT with the current
dependencies, but might lose in the long run.  E.g., suppose someone
decides to add GNU Findutils to the bundle.

Questionable.  Why deprive the users from being able to read the docs
of the dependencies?  Some of that could be very relevant.  E.g., what
about the docs of bzip2.exe, xz.exe, etc.? they might come in handy
for setting up all kinds of *-switches defcustoms.

If some dependency is configured to access fonts via Fontconfig (is it
HarfBuzz?), then this is a mistake, because some of those utilities
are needed to maintain the font cache.
