Solved Default packages on DigitalOcean's FreeBSD 11 droplet

I just spun up a FreeBSD 11 (no ZFS) droplet on DigitalOcean.
When I run pkg info I get a long list of installed packages, a few of them have to do with X11 but I don't plan on using a GUI. Is there any reason to keep them around or could I just remove everything?

Here are the packages installed:

That is something DigitalOcean's support team can probably answer better. They obviously customize their images for whatever reason.

I found this comment through Google from 2 years ago. It probably still applies.
avahi-autoipd and cloud-init are installed on the image in order to allow us to configure networking and other bits when a new instance is spun up. Besides those packages, it should be a standard install. I suspect most of what you are seeing are dependencies of avahi.
I'm pretty sure avahi doesn't need those X11 libraries, see what # pkg autoremove shows as automatically installed packages that could be redundant.
Update: mentioned in the thread linked by tobik above, most of those packages are dependencies of avahi-autoipd which is installed by DigitalOcean in order to configure networking on the server.

Marked as solved
