The bootstrap configuration for ArchLinux contains a whole bunch of packages that serve no purpose. I suppose they were originally copied from the PKGBUILD for the upstream Firefox build, which plausibly has uses for some of them.

This patch removes the packages which are obviously unnecessary, either
because they're entirely unused (e.g., imake), or because they're built
in-tree (e.g., nss, icu, hunspell) by default.

xorg-server-xvfb is arguably also not necessary, but is probably useful enough
to keep. Some of the others I'm unsure about, so I've left as well.

Bugbug thinks this bug is a task, but please change it back in case of error.
