I was unable to emerge freeciv only as a server without redundant libraries.
I've patched the freeciv ebuilds so now it is possible. I've added the probalby new sdl USE flag. When USE flags looks like this: "-X -Xawd3d -gtk -gtk2 -gnome -kde -sdl" then only freeciv-server will be emerged. I'll attach my ebuilds for freeciv wich are using the new sdl flag as an option.
Steps to Reproduce:

freeciv-1.14.2.ebuild patched with sdl flag as an option
When sdl is not as an option 'emerge freeciv' emerges many redundant libraries
to run freeciv as a serveronly. This modification fixes it.

older ebuild patched too
Use 2.0.1 with the dedicated flag. No plans to add a 1.14 version with dedicated support.
