What do you mean? If you allude to

"Unison is a file-synchronization tool for Unix and Windows."

This means it can be used with MS-Windows, too. Depends just list ocaml 
and gmake is required for build. It could be build with a graphical ui, 
but this isn't implemented in the port (MAKE_ARGS= UISTYLE=text).

So I can't see anything telling it requires XFree86 (didn't look at the 
port index maybe it's in there?).
