Yum and recommended/suggested packages

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I'd like to install a software package on my Fedora System, but it has a lot of unreasonable dependencies (which I know for sure they are not actually required). I used to work on Debian, where apt-get allows you to systematically exclude recommended and suggested packages, installing only the strictly required dependencies. Is there a way to do so with Yum?
