In other words, you think that making base X11 blocks (such as drivers
and libxcb) depend on Gnome, per this definition in bsd.port.mk:

    # USE_GNOME	- A list of the Gnome dependencies the port has (e.g.,
    #		glib12, gtk12).  Implies that the port needs Gnome.
    #		Implies inclusion of bsd.gnome.mk.  See bsd.gnome.mk
    #		or http://www.FreeBSD.org/gnome/docs/porting.html
    #		for more details.

is the right thing, correct?
