mtools vs X11 (Re: FreeBSD Port: syslinux-3.72)

Over the years, my default make.conf has accumulated options to tell
ports not to include X11 dependencies.  It doesn't always work, but I'd
never have known that something like mtools had a GUI option.

NOX11=          yes
NO_X11=         yes
WITHOUT_X11=    yes

I haven't reaped the older declarations yet because I still have a
couple of old boxes.
