Thanks to Paul Bovens and Daniel Denes for their quick response.  Paul 
hit what I was looking for on the head so I'm including it for posterity.

I don't think there is a quick/easy way to remove e.g. Apache except for 
removing the constituent packages with pkgrm.

During installation, you can configure which software gets installed in 
the profile file. To prevent apache from being installed, you could add:

cluster: SUNWCapache delete

Make sure that statement comes after any statements that might -add- it.

One place to find which clusters exist is to look in your jumpstart 
tree: view .../Solaris_9/Product/.clustertoc which contains all the 
cluster and packages. With suitable add/delete statements for clusters 
or individual packages you can fine-tune what gets installed. We  have 
sort of a 'default' prototype which we just edit to turn certain 
features on or of. I've included an example below.
