There's no WITHOUT_X11 target in the port's Makefile, so it's not going to
do anything. 

http://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?=&p=101162 and the existence of a 
Debian & Ubuntu "vlc-nox" package [1] suggests that it can be done, but you'll 
have to do a custom build with a number of --without-foo configure options 

There are a lot of knobs in the port (see Makefile.inc) and maybe some 
combination of them will work for you, but I'm guessing you'll have to end
up doing a custom build. The maintainer of the port, funman at videolan.org, 
might be of some assistance.
