I've dropped all of these to optional. (*d based on most people not really
needing servers running locally, talk based on it presumably not being much
use without a talkd)

It might be useful to be able to get these sorts of things back using a
'unix-servers' task or similar.

Since there's a 'tetex' task, I've also dropped tetex from standard to
optional: people who want TeX will need to choose the task now.
