build ports without X -- make.conf

In BSD 4.x, there was a section in the make.conf manpage that said you
could define WITHOUT_X11 and ports would build without it (for things like
ghostscript, cvsup, etc, which have distinctly different ports)
For some reason this is gone in 5.x -- what's the appropriate way to do
this now (since WITHOUT_X11 still worked on a couple ports I've tried.)
If this is still the valid way, shouldn't it be documented as such?
