--- Comment #2 from Miroslav Lachman <000.fbsd@quip.cz> ---
As always - there is no one size fits all for packages shared between desktop
and servers.
PHP and it's extensions is mainly used on headless servers, that's why
pecl-imagick-im7 depends on ImageMagic7-nox11. Server admins usually do not
need and do not want to install Xorg on headless machines.
Ports / packages does not allow to set list of optional alternative
dependencies so if there is record for ImageMagic7-nox11 and other package
needs ImageMagic7, they cannot be installed together. User needs to build it's
own package with options and dependencies that suits requirements of ones

pecl-vips requires graphics/vips but cannot say "use vips without x11 for
ImageMagic dependency".
The only possible solution is to create flavor or metaport for vips-nox11 and
then use it as dependency for pecl-vips. Then all PHP / PECL extensions will be
built without X11, with the same variant of ImageMagic.
