What you mention won't give you base, comp, man, misc, text as far as I can
tell, however, if you add "src" you will, and then I think you could omit
bmake and include.

I think if you have src and the above, allsrc would only add games and
You could save on space supping ksrc-common and ksrc-alpha rather than ksrc,
though you will probably have to copy src/sys/arch/Makefile from somewhere.
