You can workaround this using some options to apt. You can use
apt install broctl mysql-common-
to install broctl but not pull in the mysql libs. This gets the package install from 76 packages and 94MB to 48 packages and 65MB.
apt install --no-install-recommends broctl
gets it down to 37 packages and 48MB, but that probably leaves out some things that you'd want like the geoip stuff.
