I wish I was wrong, but as far as I know you can't do it (yet?),
although there have been many requests for it. To remove unneeded
files you can use
    ctxtools --purge [--all]
(texutill --purge[all] if you don't have the ruby variant installed yet)
although I know that that's not quite the same. (I know some people in
LaTeX world who use make files to copy/remove files.)
