NM does have a larger dep-chain than we'd like, however we did split
the package apart a couple releases ago and made sure that WWAN, WiFi,
and Bluetooth were no longer required for the server cases.  Could you
confirm what NetworkManager-* packages are installed on F23 server?

The largest deps should be mostly glib2, systemd/udev, NSS, and D-Bus,
all of which should already be on a server install.  We'd love to see
if anything unexpected snuck into the dep chain.
