Is there a simple way to remove the universal-darwin package to keep only the x86_64 ones once mactex is installed?

> About This Release:
> 1) Last year we provided Ghostscript 9.07. The new package has Ghostscript 9.10.
> Ghostscript 9.14 was released a couple of weeks ago, but it has significant
> TeX-related bugs and will not be used.
> 2) Convert from ImageMagick is no longer supplied because this year's tex4ht uses
> Ghostscript to image some of its elements for the web. To convert between graphic
> formats on the Mac, use Apple's Preview or Apple's command line program sips.
> 3) We no longer supply the Latin-Modern and TeX Gyre fonts for use outside TeX,
> because users can create links in the Apple font directories to any open-type
> TeX fonts they wish to use.
> 4) Donald Knuth patches bugs on a regular but sparse schedule. The last patches
> were in 2008, his 2014 patches are in the new packages, and he'll visit the
> issue again in 2020.
> 5) MacTeX and BasicTeX are for Intel and PowerPC processors on Leopard and above.
> 6) Last year's MacTeX had size 2.36 GB. This year's MacTeX has size 2.48 GB. MacTeX-2014
> installs in approximately one minute on a Retina machine with flash storage.
> 7) Further details are available on the Tug Pretest Page.
