Oh, and this is not your fault at all; when you try to build a port
(either by dependency or not) which has a dfports override,
/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk is not used, but the default value for
the variable X_WINDOW_SYSTEM along with many definitions are in this
file, so just putting `X_WINDOW_SYSTEM=' line in /etc/make.conf hides
the real problems. As we can't simply include FreeBSD version of bsd.port.mk,
someone has to port the definitions for dfports before we can build
X-related programs properly.
