Yeah, these are keyboard mapping for other keyboard layouts, or can delete
them although your packaging system may get a little upset.  They are also
already compressed so you're not going to be saving much.

Foreign-language man [help] pages.  I blame Redhat personally.

If you're wanting the ability to /choose/ a minimal install, then I would
recommend looking at Debian since it installs the minimum by default and
allows you to install more--rather than the other way around (eg: install
lots and making you try and work out what you can rip-out yourself).

I suspect that uninstalling some package/application will probably recover
you more space than deleting all of the above.
