If you don't want X at all (you said "headless", didn't you?), then
remove the package "xorg-common".  This should remove all X
applications, the X server(s), and X libraries.  Others, like Python's
and Perl's add-ons, should be removed manually.

Just wait, and somebody (probably) will post a better answer.
