I believe the category was created by Harold Hunt for the XFree86 upgrade
helpers when Cygwin/X switched to the source base.  The name of the
category was supposed to imply that the packages should not be installed
on a fresh install.  The packages in that category are all very small,
though (about .5k per directory), and installing them should be harmless.
You can go either way.
