One of my machines has been sitting on a 'make index' for the better
part of 24 hours, with no end in sight.

Is there a package out there for doing 'make index/readme' a little

Also, is it possible to 'turn off' parts of pkgsrc?  For example, I
don't need anything like kde or gnome.  I use sup to update pkgsrc,
but I just don't want some things updated or anything.

I can't just erase the directories, and I imagine that sup would
replace any edits I made of package lists.

Is there an official way to effectively turn packages off?
