they are not packages. there are eight packages:
base, etc, misc, text , man, src, syssrc, and comp
and sometimes the X stuff. They are tarballs, and so you can easily find
the lists of files in them and write a script to remove them.

just remove the m4 binary, the sendmail binary, the sendmail conf files, and
you're done with them. maybe six or seven files altogether.
