--- Comment #15 from Michael Osipov <michael.osipov@siemens.com> ---
A it turns out, Debian does exactly what I have observed. The port flavors
don't make sense:

ghostscript (10.0.0~dfsg-8) unstable; urgency=medium

  * QA upload
  * debian/: No longer build with dynamic modules (Closes: #1023330)
    - X11 support is now part of ghostscript and ghostcript-x is a
      transitional package.

https://packages.debian.org/sid/ghostscript-x where libgs depends on X:


Installed Debian 12 Testing: GS is by default linked with X11 libs. Default
device is x11alpha and when you invoke GS interactively it of course tries to
connect to an X server.

14 ports require X11 which Ghostscript.

So it really looks to be that this should be a port option, the question
whether it should be default or not.

Currently, 156 ports define X11 and 104 of them enable X11 by default.
