ACK; some packages should be split to avoid such dependencies. 'gnupg'
(which brings 'perl' and 'openldap' into the game (additional 50MB)) and
'kernel' (which wastes 30MB and 6000 inodes of my /) are packages coming
at first into my mind...

Just do 'echo "%_install_langs C:en" >>/etc/rpm/macros' and reinstall
everything (as anaconda neither sets it on fresh installs nor honors it
on upgrades).
