re. Issue with dbus port build on 7.0-STABLE

Sorry for emailing direct - I found this email address on the FreeBSD/ports 
site, as the maintainer for /usr/ports/devel/dbus.

I have an i386 7.0-STABLE system, with ports cvsup'd as of 19:00 / 04/04/08 
- and it keeps failing to build dbus, with the error below.

I don't have X-11 on my system, and my '/etc/make.conf' file has the 
following entries:

# added by use.perl 2007-10-27 08:38:42

I just thought I'd let you know, and ask if there's a workaround for 
getting it built in the interim.

I've got a 7.0-RELEASE box at work, that also doesn't have X-11 on it, and 
that seemed to build it OK the other day (it's switched off at the moment, 
so I can't cross reference anything).

Thanks for your time,
